BACKGROUND: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a rare cause of arteriovenous fistula (AVF). The pathogenesis of acquired AVF after DVT remains unclear, and publications focusing on therapy and follow-up are also inadequate. In this study, the diagnosis and treatment of 24 patients with acquired AVF in the lower extremity after DVT was reported. METHODS: This is a retrospective study. We studied 24 patients with acquired AVF after DVT who were screened by ultrasound and confirmed by arteriography or computed tomographic arteriography (CTA) in our hospital...

BACKGROUND: S100-β protein has been introduced as a sensitive biomarker of silent cerebral injury. This study compares its serum levels before, during, and 24 hours after Carotid Artery Stenting (CAS) and Carotid Endarterectomy (CEA). METHODS: We measured serum level of S100-β in arterial blood before (S100Ba), during (S100Bb), and 24 hours after (S100Bc) CAS and CEA. We assessed differences in S100-β levels using non-parametric tests. We analyzed the relationship between carotid plaque type (echolucency) and S100-β protein level...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular treatment below-the-knee is safe and effective but limited by poor potency. Coronary DES may play a role in providing mechanical scaffolding and deliver anti-proliferative drug to the site of vascular barotrauma to reduce the incidence of restenosis. Our aim was to evaluate and compare the use of contemporary drug-eluting stents (DES) with standard endovascular-therapies for atherosclerotic disease of infrapopliteal arteries. METHODS: We performed a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials comparing DES with conventional treatment for symptomatic peripheral artery disease (search date 30 August 2017)...

BACKGROUND: A transjugular temporary inferior vena cava (IVC) filter may change position with respiration, leading to serious complications such as filter migration to the right atrium (RA) or renal veins. We therefore evaluated respiratory changes in the length and diameter of the vena cava using MRI. METOHDS: In 20 volunteers, the length and diameter of the vascular segments from the right brachiocephalic vein (BCV) to infrarenal IVC were measured with MRI. RESULTS: The mean lengths in mm (±SD) of the BCV, superior vena cava (SVC), RA, suprarenal IVC, and infrarenal IVC during expiration vs...

Varicose vein surgery is among the most commonly performed surgical interventions. The standard treatment 'high ligation and stripping' has in many countries been replaced by endovenous techniques. However there are many different techniques available. All have a different way of action and sometimes need different skills. The purpose of this review article is to give an update in those different endovenous ablation techniques. We describe the indications, technique, mechanisms of action and results. We conclude that all different techniques can be used safely and are effective...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) includes variety of morphologies with changing properties. Growth rate is one of the most important factors directly linked to the risk of rupture. Intraluminal thrombus (ILT) covering aortic wall is found in majority of AAAs. Yet, its role in biomechanical processes in AAA remains unclear. From one point of view ILT can serve as protective factor in reducing wall stress of AAA and thus slow down the growth. Modern concept of multilayered ILT proved active inflammatory processes inside, that can significantly affect the quality of the wall and thus lead to the higher growth rate and higher risk of rupture...

The presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is associated with increased thrombin formation, fibrin turnover and fibrinolysis. The aim of this study was to review the relevant literature and summarize the evidence regarding the impact of endovascular repair on the circulating markers of coagulation and fibrinolysis post procedure. The main findings are that the increased thrombin activation, and formation, as well as fibrinolysis, in patients with AAA is exacerbated after endovascular repair in the short-term and the mid-term, implying that this may be a period associated with an increased likelihood for adverse cardiovascular events...

The aim of this review was to discuss the different techniques of leg edema measurement that have been used in clinical trials to help determine the most appropriate method of assessment and quantification for use in future research. Venoactive drugs such as micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) are established agents for the treatment of venous leg edema, but results from randomized- controlled trials vary depending on the method of edema assessment. The medical literature was searched for published articles using the terms venous lower limb edema and method of edema assessment...

Competitive inhibition of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) is the main biological effect of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) - the methylated derivative of L- arginine. The resulting low level of NO is becoming one of the elements of pathogenesis of numerous cardiovascular disorders, mainly related to atherosclerosis, but also other metabolic diseases including type 2 diabetes. It appears that a high level of ADMA is not only a marker of pathological conditions such as chronic kidney failure, but also a significant factor which damages the endothelium...
