BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of serum albumin-to-creatinine ratio (sACR) in carotid artery stenting (CAS) patients regarding in-hospital and 5-year outcomes. METHODS: This is a retrospective study. Baseline characteristics were compared between patients by admission albumin to creatinine ratio and categorized accordingly: T1, T2 and T3. 609 patients were included in the study. Serum albumin and creatinine levels at hospital admission were used to calculate the sACR...

BACKGROUND: Sclerotherapy is a cornerstone of the treatment of chronic venous disease, despite some technical aspects (e.g., sclerosant liquid agent concentration [SLAC] and contact time between sclerosant agent and vein wall [ctSA/VW]) to maximize outcomes remain an unsolved problem and a source of debate. An innovative three-balloon catheter has been developed to allow sclerotherapy in empty vein conditions (Empty Vein Ablation technique, EVA), revolutionizing the definition of SLAC and ctSA/VW...

BACKGROUND: High-risk carotid artery plaque (HPR) is associated with a markedly increased risk of ischemic stroke. The aims of this study were: 1) to examine the prevalence of HRP in a cohort of asymptomatic adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D); 2) to investigate the relationship between HRP, established cardiovascular risk factors and computed tomography angiography (CTA) profile; and 3) to assess whether the presence of HRP is associated with an increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE)...

BACKGROUND: To estimate the impact of anesthetic conduct, alone and in combination with the type of femoral access, on early results after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). METHODS: A retrospective multicenter analysis on patients undergoing elective standard EVAR at four academic centers was performed. Patients undergoing the procedure through either local or general anesthesia were compared. Comparative subanalyses of the two groups were performed for the type of femoral access to evaluate further impact on outcomes...

BACKGROUND: No large-scale, multicenter studies have explored the incidence rate and predictors of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We aimed to determine the risk factors of DVT, and assess the association between DVT and clinical outcomes in AIS patients. METHODS: In total, 106,612 patients with AIS enrolled in the Chinese Stroke Center Alliance between August 2015 and July 2019 were included. The predictors of DVT in AIS patients were screened based on the logistic regression analysis for the comparison of the characteristics and clinical outcomes of patients with and without DVT...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of lower limb edema is high among patients with chronic venous disease (CVD). Several clinical studies with various designs have assessed the effect of micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) on edema. The aim of this work was to provide a comprehensive and accurate evaluation of the reduction in ankle and calf circumference as an indicator of lower limb edema reduction in patients with CVD treated with MPFF by combining studies that use different designs in a single group meta-analysis...

BACKGROUND: Telangiectasias and reticular veins are associated with aesthetic disorders. Sclerotherapy is the gold standard treatment, but long-pulsed 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser (LP1064 laser) is also used. No data on the human histological effects of these lasers are reported. The objective was to test different LP1064 laser parameters and their histological effects on the dermis, collagen, telangiectasias, and reticular veins. METHODS: This was a single-center, prospective, single-arm, case-control, human study...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic venous disease (CVD) can lead to considerable morbidity and impact health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The aim of this review was twofold: (i) to provide a deeper understanding of how CVD affects HRQoL (physical, psychological and social functioning), and (ii) to review the impact of evidence-based veno-active drugs (VADs) on HRQoL. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: For the effect of CVD on HRQoL, information was gathered during an Expert Consensus Meeting, during which data were presented from both the patient and physician perspective assessed with validated quality-of-life measures...

BACKGROUND: Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and diabetes mellitus (DM) pose significant burdens to patients and healthcare systems. While the two diseases share a number of commonalities in risk factors and pathophysiology, they are often assessed and managed separately. This can lead to a worsening of comorbidities and limitations in a patient's quality of life. This project aims to develop recommendations to enhance the identification and treatment of patients with concomitant CVI and DM...

BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are developmental defects in the vascular system with abnormal connections between arteries and veins. A minority of AVMs are characterized by aggressive growth and continue to proliferate despite maximal surgical and interventional therapy. We report our outcomes with the use of thalidomide as the only UK specialist center adopting this novel approach for the management of AVMs refractory to conventional therapy. METHODS: This was a retrospective case series which included only complex and proliferative AVM lesions (Schobinger grade III and IV)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess perioperative and late performance of a silver acetate and triclosan impregnated antimicrobial vascular graft (Intergard Synergy, Intervascular SAS, La Ciotat, France) during open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), and to compare it with standard polyester grafts ones. METHODS: This retrospective single-centre study (STAGER Study, clinicaltrials.gov: NCT04557254) included patients undergone non-infectious AAA surgical repair between 2012 and 2019, divided into two groups according to the implanted aortic prosthesis: standard polyester graft (PolyG) and silver-triclosan graft (SynG)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate the correlation between frailty, measured by the Five-Factor Modified Frailty Index (mFI-5) and mortality and all major adverse events (MAE) in patients who underwent proximal abdominal aortic aneurysm (p-AAA) open surgery (OS). METHODS: Data of all elective patients submitted to p-AAA OS from 2010 to 2021 were recorded. Primary endpoints were 30-day mortality and mid-term survival and secondary endpoints included postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), freedom from aortic reintervention and any MAE...
