Four Surgical Modifications to the Classic Elastase Perfusion Aneurysm Model Enable Haemodynamic Alterations and Extended Elastase Perfusion

Journal of Vascular Surgery - August 1, 2018 - 00:00
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an individual and socioeconomic burden in today's ageing society. Treatment relies on surgical exclusion of the dilated aorta by open or endovascular repair. For research purposes, animal models are necessary and the elastase induced aneurysm model closely mimics end stage human aneurysm disease. To improve the translational value of this model, four modifications to the classic elastase perfusion procedure (PPE) in relation to human aneurysm morphology were conducted.

Pre-operative Color Doppler Ultrasonography Predicts Endovenous Heat Induced Thrombosis after Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

Journal of Vascular Surgery - August 1, 2018 - 00:00
The aim was to identify pre-operative color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) variables predictive of post-operative endovenous heat induced thrombosis (EHIT) after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the saphenous veins.

Accuracy of Routine Endoscopy Diagnosing Colonic Ischaemia After Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair: A Meta-analysis

Journal of Vascular Surgery - August 1, 2018 - 00:00
Colonic ischaemia (CI) is a devastating complication after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. The aim of this review was to evaluate the diagnostic test accuracy of routine endoscopy in diagnosing CI after treatment for elective and acute AAA.

Correlation between MDCTA and Carotid Plaque Histological Heterogeneity: A Pilot Study

Journal of Vascular Surgery - August 1, 2018 - 00:00
The aim of this pilot study was to identify multidetector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) features that may help identify carotid atherosclerotic plaques (CAPs) with severe histological heterogeneity.
