Current evidence in predictors of aortic growth and events in acute type B aortic dissection

August 13, 2018 - 00:00
Acute type B aortic dissection can have a stable course or evolve into aneurysm and subsequent adverse events. The aim of this systematic review was to analyze the morphologic predictors of an adverse course to establish their validity based on consistency of results.

Optimal medical management before lower extremity bypass for claudication in the veteran population

August 11, 2018 - 00:00
Optimizing medical management through glucose control, smoking cessation, and drug therapy (ie, antiplatelet and statin agents) is recommended as first-line therapy for patients with claudication. The aims of this study were to determine how frequently veterans with claudication received optimal medical management (OMM) before undergoing elective open lower extremity bypass procedures nationwide and whether preoperative OMM was associated with improved surgical outcomes.

Improved effectiveness of the repositionable GORE EXCLUDER AAA endoprosthesis featuring the C3 delivery system compared with the original GORE EXCLUDER AAA endoprosthesis for within the instructions for use treatment of aortoiliac aneurysms

August 11, 2018 - 00:00
To compare two endograft types, the original GORE EXCLUDER AAA endoprosthesis (W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) with the repositionable GORE EXCLUDER featuring the C3 delivery system, which allows repositioning of the proximal part of the graft to achieve accurate placement in relation to the renal arteries, in unselected patients with aortoiliac aneurysms. In a second nested, substudy we investigated the relative effect of the standard Gore and Gore Dryseal introducer sheaths on intraoperative transfusion needs.

Outcome of drug-eluting balloon angioplasty versus endarterectomy in common femoral artery occlusive disease

August 10, 2018 - 00:00
Common femoral artery (CFA) occlusive disease remains a debatable site for endovascular therapy, and the outcome of drug-eluting balloon (DEB) angioplasty in treating CFA occlusive disease is largely unknown. This study compared the efficacy, safety, and short-term patency rate of DEB angioplasty and femoral endarterectomy for treatment of CFA occlusive disease.

Reversible secretome and signaling defects in diabetic mesenchymal stem cells from peripheral arterial disease patients

August 10, 2018 - 00:00
Regenerative medicine seeks to stall or to reverse the pathologic consequences of chronic diseases. Many people with diabetes have peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which increases their already high risk of major amputation. Cellular therapies are a promising regenerative medicine approach to PAD that can be used to focally inject regenerative cells to endangered tissue beds. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are known to promote tissue regeneration through stromal support and paracrine stimulation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis).

Early results with the custom-made Fenestrated Anaconda aortic cuff in the treatment of complex abdominal aortic aneurysm

August 10, 2018 - 00:00
The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of a specific custom-made fenestrated aortic cuff in the treatment of complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).

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

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.
