In the June 2019 regular and supplement issues of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, the editorials by Drs Lawrence and Gloviczki that published in each issue contained an error in the use of the term “critical limb-threatening ischemia”. The correct term is “chronic limb-threatening ischemia”. The error has been corrected in the title and in the first paragraph of both of these editorials.

Cryopreserved Allografts for Arterial Reconstruction after Aorto-Iliac Infection: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

August 1, 2019 - 00:00
Native and aortic graft infections are rare, but they represent one of the most life threatening complications of vascular surgery. Several materials and surgical approaches have been developed so far. Among them, cryopreserved allografts have been proposed as a treatment option. A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to investigate the role of cryopreserved allografts for arterial reconstruction after aorto-iliac infection.

The aim was to evaluate the distribution of the diameter of the great saphenous vein (GSV) at mid-thigh level and to investigate its association with clinical class, symptoms, and proximal extent of reflux.

A Comparison of Clinical Outcomes Following Femoropopliteal Bypass or Plain Balloon Angioplasty with Selective Bare Metal Stenting in the Bypass Versus Angioplasty in Severe Ischaemia of the Limb (BASIL) Trial

August 1, 2019 - 00:00
To compare outcomes in patients with chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI) due to femoropopliteal (FP), with or without infrapopliteal (IP), disease who underwent FP (vein or synthetic) open surgical bypass (OSB), or plain balloon angioplasty (PBA), with or without bare metal stenting (BMS), in the Bypass versus Angioplasty in Severe Ischaemia of the Limb (BASIL-1) trial.

A Rotational Thromboelastometry Driven Transfusion Strategy Reduces Allogenic Blood Transfusion During Open Thoraco-abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair: A Propensity Score Matched Study

August 1, 2019 - 00:00
Open repair of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) is a challenging procedure, associated with high rates of peri-operative bleeding and blood product transfusions. A large intra-operative volume transfusion has been associated with higher in hospital mortality and prolonged mechanical ventilation. A propensity score matched study was carried out to assess whether the introduction of a rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) based transfusion strategy reduces allogenic blood transfusion and affects morbidity in patients undergoing open TAAA repair.
