Intraoperative Vascular Assistance: Essential to an Institution's Ability to Provide Surgical Care

The wide breadth of vascular surgery (VS) training enables vascular surgeons to assist in nonvascular operations and rapidly respond to urgent and emergent needs for intervention. This study aims to evaluate VS secondary operative assistance and intraoperative consultations

Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma Promotes the Healing of Non-Ischemic Diabetic Foot Ulcers. A Randomized Controlled Trial

DFU (diabetic foot ulcer) represents a major global health and socioeconomic problem and a leading cause of lower limb amputation. Although many therapies have been tested, none has been proposed as a dominant wound healing treatment. We performed a prospective randomized controlled study in order to assess the role of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) for the promotion of non-ischemic DFU healing.

Physician-Modified Endografts Versus Chimney/Snorkel for Ruptured and Symptomatic Juxtarenal and Paravisceral Aneurysms in the Vascular Quality Initiative

Ruptured and symptomatic juxtarenal and paravisceral aneurysms present technical challenges during endovascular repair. We sought to compare physician modification and fenestrated (PMEG) versus chimney/periscope/snorkel (CHIMPS) repair techniques for the treatment of ruptured and symptomatic paravisceral and juxtarenal aortic aneurysms (r/sPJAA).

Deep Venous Arterialization for Chronic Limb Threatening Ischemia in Atherosclerosis Patients – A Meta-Analysis

Venous arterialization is an upcoming and novel alternative in chronic limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) patients in the absence of standard revascularization options. The aim of this study is to systematically review and analyze outcomes of venous arterialization.

The “Skewer Technique” for Stentgraft Delivery in the Aortic Arch: Advancing the Dilatator in The Innominate Artery Over a Right Femoro-Brachial Through-And-Through Wire

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is the preferred treatment for different aortic pathologies, because it has reduced mortality and morbidity rates. However, TEVAR is not feasible in all cases due to aortic angulations, the hemodynamics of the aortic arch and narrow or tortuous iliofemoral access. Therefore, different adjuvant techniques, such as iliac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, iliathrough-and-through guidewires and external transapical guidewires have been previously reported.
