Explanted Vascular and Endovascular Graft Analysis: Where Do We Stand and What Should We Do?

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Since the late 1950s, major advances in vascular surgical practice have been closely associated with the introduction of novel vascular implants. These devices have been constructed from a variety of materials and have been designed to be implanted in several different ways. Despite a rigorous regulatory process, regular failures continue to be observed. A systematic review of the literature and of the Geprovas registry was performed in order to improve understanding of the failures.

Antithrombotic Therapy Following Venous Stenting: International Delphi Consensus

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Deep venous stenting is increasingly used in the treatment of deep venous obstruction; however, there is currently no consensus regarding post-procedural antithrombotic therapy. The aim of the present study was to determine the most commonly used antithrombotic regimens and facilitate global consensus.

Infrapopliteal Angioplasty of One or More than One Artery for Critical Limb Ischaemia: A Randomised Clinical Trial

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
The aim was to analyse the effect of the treatment of more than one infrapopliteal artery with respect to wound healing and limb salvage.

The Implications of Non-compliance to Endovascular Aneurysm Repair Surveillance: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Increasingly, reports show that compliance rates with endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) surveillance are often suboptimal. The aim of this study was to determine the safety implications of non-compliance with surveillance.

Screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm During Transthoracic Echocardiography: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) during transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) may be an effective targeted screening strategy.

An Updated Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Outcomes Following Eversion vs. Conventional Carotid Endarterectomy in Randomised Controlled Trials and Observational Studies

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
A 2011 meta-analysis comparing eversion (eCEA) with conventional (cCEA) carotid endarterectomy in 16,251 patients concluded that eCEA was associated with lower rates of peri-operative stroke and late occlusion compared with cCEA. However, randomised controlled trials (RCTs) showed no difference in outcomes. Since then, the literature contains outcome data on 49,500 patients undergoing eCEA or cCEA. An updated meta-analysis was performed to establish whether eCEA confers significant benefit over cCEA.

Flow Reduction-Aided Thrombin Injection for Complex Femoral Pseudoaneurysm: Case Series and Review of the Literature

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Single-center retrospective review (dates not provided) with selective review of the literature.

Outcomes of Isolated Tibial Endovascular Interventions for Rest Pain in Patients on Dialysis

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Single-center retrospective review between 2006 and 2016.

Safety and Outcomes of Ipsilateral Antegrade Angioplasty for Femoropopliteal Disease

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Single-center retrospective review comparing ipsilateral antegrade femoral arterial access (AA) and contralateral retrograde femoral artery access (RA) between 2010 and 2015.

Risk of Intracranial Hemorrhage After Carotid Artery Stenting Versus Endarterectomy: A Population-Based Study

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
This is a retrospective population-based study of patients comparing the rate of postprocedure intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) after carotid artery stenting (CAS) vs carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in Ontario, Canada between 2002 and 2015.

Risk Factors for Suboptimal Utilization of Statins and Antiplatelet Therapy in Patients Undergoing Revascularization for Symptomatic Peripheral Arterial Disease

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
The Vascular Study Group of Greater New York (VSGGNY) database was used to identify all patients undergoing peripheral vascular intervention or lower extremity bypass for peripheral arterial disease (PAD; 2011-2013).

In the January 2018 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, the article by Tian et al (Tian Y, Zhang W, Sun J, Zhai H, Yu Y, Qi X, et al. A reproducible swine model of proximal descending thoracic aortic aneurysm created with intra-adventitial application of elastase. J Vasc Surg 2018;67:300-8) listed the incorrect grant number for National Natural Science Foundation of China. The correct grant number is No. 81571778.

Invited commentary

May 1, 2018 - 00:00
Arous and colleagues have presented interesting information about the establishment and growth of our new vascular surgery training paradigm during the last 10 years. The integrated vascular surgery training pathway (also known as the 0 + 5 program) was approved by the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery in 2006 to offer medical students a direct pathway to vascular surgery certification without first being certified in surgery. The program was met with enthusiasm by some but skepticism by many in the traditional world of general surgery.
