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
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.
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).
The aim of the study was to determine the prognostic significance of measurement of graft flow on the patency of distal bypass.
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.
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.
