» Trends in Pharmacologic Management After Iliac Venous Stent Placement
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
The optimal pharmacologic regimen after vein stent placement for chronic proximal venous outflow obstruction (PVOO) varies significantly amongst vascular surgeons. This study was conducted to highlight this concern, and support the need ...

» Adjunctive False Lumen Intervention for Aortic Dissection Is Safe But Offers Unclear Benefit
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Adjunctive false lumen embolization (FLE) with thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in patients with chronic aortic dissection is thought to induce FL thrombosis and favorable aortic remodeling. However, evidence is limited and th...

» Redo Hemodialysis Access In Elderly Patients Has Acceptable Outcomes With Similar Patency Of Arteriovenous Fistulas As Compared To Grafts
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Selecting optimal hemodialysis access in elderly patients remains challenging, particularly in those requiring new options after failed initial access. We sought to describe the outcomes of redo hemodialysis access in elderly patients.

» Quantifying The Charges Of Creating And Maintaining Hemodialysis Access In An All-payer Rate-controlled Health System
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
The creation and maintenance of durable hemodialysis access is critical in reducing patient morbidity and controlling costs within health systems. We examined the charges associated with hemodialysis access placement and its maintenance ...

» Management And Outcomes After Upper Versus Lower Extremity Vascular Trauma
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Significant literature exists regarding peripheral vascular injury management, the vast majority on lower extremities. As a result, management of arterial injuries in the upper extremities is often guided by literature specific to lower ...

» Impact Of Tibial Bypass Conduit On Long-term Patency And Survival In The Vascular Quality Initiative
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Optimal conduit selection for tibial artery bypass in limited clinical situations remains controversial. We sought to characterize long-term patency and mortality of patients undergoing tibial bypass across conduit types in the VQI.

» Popliteal Vein External Banding For Treatment Of Chronic Venous Insufficiency
20/02/21 03:18 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) remains a challenging global problem with significant impact on patient quality of life. Despite multiple different available surgical therapies, the outcomes following deep venous surgical reconstructi...
