Background : Catheter-directed peripheral thrombolysis is used increasingly for the management of acute limb ischemia. The comparison of different agents and techniques has proven difficult because of the variations in patient presentation, vessel involvement, and treatment methods. Methods : A...
Background : Initial antibiotic treatment of extracavitary arterial graft infections is usually empiric or based on Gram's stain findings. Increasing virulence of bacteria causing extracavitary arterial graft infections may render previous choices of antibiotics obsolete. The purposes of this...
Background : The incidence and management of peripheral vascular complications of aortic dissection is unsettled. Patients and methods : Peripheral vascular complications of spontaneous aortic dissection were examined in a 5-year retrospective review. Patients who had peripheral vascular...
Background : Abdominal aortic aneurysm and renal neoplasm are occasionally discovered concurrently. Simultaneous operative therapy may be an effective alternate management strategy to a staged procedure. Patients and methods : The medical records of 10 consecutive patients undergoing abdominal...
Background : Deployment of transfemoral, endovascular stent grafts for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms is appealing for several reasons: avoidance of abdominal incision, lack of aortic cross-clamping, potential for regional anesthesia, and shortened hospital stay. Concerns remain,...
Background : Despite recent increased indications for infrapopliteal prosthetic bypass grafts with complementary arteriovenous fistulas, objective documentation of improved perfusion to the foot is lacking. In addition, the value of post-operative noninvasive testing in the prediction of bypass...
Background : Proliferation of arterial smoothmuscle cells is central in the development of both atherosclerosis and intimal hyperplasia. The cytokine transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) is known to have variable effects on smooth-muscle cell proliferation. Using human arterial...
Background : We previously reported that the coating of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) with fibrin glue containing fibroblast growth factor 1 (FGF-1) and heparin accelerates endothelial coverage of grafts implanted into animals. We report here the effect of this surface modification on...
Background : This study was designed to assess the intraoperative risk of cerebral microembolism, as detected by transcranial Doppler ultrasonography, during carotid endarterectomy. Patients and methods : Thirty-six patients (37 procedures) with symptomatic (n = 35) or asymptomatic (n = 2)...
