Regarding “A systematic review and meta-analysis of one-stage versus two-stage brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula creation”

August 1, 2019 - 00:00
We read with great interest a systematic review and meta-analysis of one-stage vs two-stage brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula creation published in the July 2018 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery.1 The review authors found an insignificant difference in all but one of their defined primary outcomes (2-year primary patency). They present the results of their significant finding (2-year primary patency) in a forest plot (Fig 2 in the review authors' paper). We would like to make the following remarks on the methodology of the study.

Looking forward through the past and changing me to we in the evolution of team-based vascular care

Being president of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) is the highlight of my career, not only professionally but personally for me, for my family, and for my partners in Albany. I would like to thank Michel Makaroun for his wonderful introduction, although most of it may not be true. I attended my first SVS meeting when I was 6 years old with my parents, and at that point, it was mostly a scientific spectacle; but for my father, the SVS meeting was much more important than being president of the United States.

Low-fidelity simulators for the training of medical students in basic endovascular skills

We read with great interest the article by Aeckersberg et al1 entitled “The relevance of low-fidelity virtual reality simulators compared with other learning methods in basic endovascular skills training,” published recently by the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

Facts, interpretations, and values

The Invited Editorial by Naylor1 begins with a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche highlighting the difference between facts and interpretations, and that difference is the key to this discussion on duplex ultrasound surveillance and management of restenosis after carotid endarterectomy and stenting. Naylor is responding to an Editorial by Paraskevas and Gloviczki,2 who reviewed the current clinical evidence and recommended routine and relatively frequent duplex ultrasound surveillance after carotid interventions, as described in the recently published Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) practice guidelines on follow-up after vascular surgery arterial procedures.

The multidisciplinary reassessment of diseases of the past offers paleopathologists and historians the possibility of shedding light on the antiquity of pathological conditions.1 Although a full discussion of this specific topic would require a different venue and a lengthier format, we appreciate input and suggestions from both the scientific and literary milieux. Regarding the chronology of the miracle, we agree that it occurred after ad 526 to 530, which corresponds to the foundation of Cosmas and Damian's church in Rome.

Historian questions paleopathological diagnosis in a work of art

The holy physicians Cosmas and Damian (3rd century ce), on whom there is an extensive bibliography, featured in accounts of miracles written above all in Greek in the East between Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Although not all of these accounts were translated into Latin, the so-called miracle of the black leg was initially drafted in this language—seemingly for the first time in Jacobus da Varagine's Golden Legend, the well-known collection of lives of saints compiled in the second half of the 13th century.
