BACKGROUND: The placement of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters often emerges as an alternative preventative measure against pulmonary embolism in patients with upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and isolated distal deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We aimed to investigate the association of IVC filter placement and the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) recurrence in this patient population. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study including 450 patients with upper GI bleeding and isolated distal DVT...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease is associated with increased rates of incidence, morbidity, and mortality in lower-extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD). No specific marker for a functional risk assessment of kidney disease in PAD is known, especially at the early stages. Thus, we speculated that urinary vanin-1 (uVNN1), a marker of oxidative stress even in early kidney injury, could further stratify outcome assessment in patients with PAD. METHODS: Patients with stable PAD ( n = 304) of the Vienna medical cohort were followed up for up to 10 years and the outcome was assessed by central death database queries...

Background: In 2014, the Affordable Care Act Medicaid Expansion (ME) increased Medicaid eligibility for adults with an income level up to 138% of the federal poverty level. In this study, we examined the impact of ME on mortality and amputation in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Methods: The 100% MedPAR and Part-B Carrier files from 2011 to 2018 were queried to identify all fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries with PAD using International Classification of Diseases codes. Our primary exposure was whether a state had adopted the ME on January 1, 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Single bouts of prolonged bent-legged sitting attenuate popliteal endothelial-dependent vasodilation (as assessed via flow-mediated dilation [FMD]), which is partially attributed to arterial 'kinking'. However, the impact of knee-flexion angle on sitting-induced popliteal FMD is unknown. The objective of this study was to perform separate laboratory and free-living studies to test the hypotheses that: (1) popliteal FMD impairments would be graded between knee flexions at 90° (bent-legged sitting) > 45° > 0° (straight-legged sitting) following a 3-hour bout of sitting; and (2) more habitual time spent bent-legged sitting (< 45°) would be associated with lower FMD...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) anomalies are uncommon congenital causes of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). KILT syndrome (kidney and IVC abnormalities with leg thrombosis) has only been described as case reports in the literature. Therefore, the characteristics, evaluation, and management of patients with KILT syndrome have not yet been standardized. This study aimed to systematically review and analyze the clinical and radiographic data and treatment of previously reported cases of KILT syndrome. In this systematic review, we performed a literature search of the PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases in December 2023, with no restrictions on the publication date...

BACKGROUND: Arterial calcification due to deficiency of CD73 (ACDC; OMIM 211800) is a rare genetic disease resulting in calcium deposits in arteries and small joints causing claudication, resting pain, severe joint pain, and deformities. Currently, there are no standard treatments for ACDC. Our previous work identified etidronate as a potential targeted ACDC treatment, using in vitro and in vivo disease models with patient-derived cells. In this study, we test the safety and effectiveness of etidronate in attenuating the progression of lower-extremity arterial calcification and vascular blood flow based on the computed tomography (CT) calcium score and ankle-brachial index (ABI)...

INTRODUCTION: Maximal acceleration time of distal arteries of the foot (ATmax ) is correlated to ankle-brachial index (ABI) and toe-brachial index (TBI), and seems very promising in diagnosing severe peripheral artery disease (PAD) and especially critical limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI). Our goal was to confirm the cut-off value of 215 ms to predict a toe pressure (TP) ⩽ 30 mmHg. METHODS: A 4-month retrospective study was conducted on patients addressed for suspicion of PAD...

This study aimed to review the current literature exploring the utility of noninvasive ocular imaging for the diagnosis of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Our search was conducted in early April 2022 and included the databases Medline, Scopus, Embase, Cochrane, and others. Five articles were included in the final review. Of the five studies that used ocular imaging in PAD, two studies used retinal color fundus photography, one used optical coherence tomography (OCT), and two used optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) to assess the ocular changes in PAD...

Introduction: The safety and effectiveness of the GORE VIABAHN Endoprosthesis for treatment of symptomatic patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and complex femoropopliteal (FP) lesions was assessed in a real-world Japanese practice setting. Methods : A prospective, multicenter, postmarket surveillance study was conducted from 2016 to 2017 at 64 sites in Japan. Symptomatic patients with PAD and FP lesions ⩾ 10 cm and reference vessel diameters ranging from 4.0 to 7.5 mm were eligible for enrollment...

Background: This study aimed to assess the peri- and postprocedural outcomes of atherectomy-assisted endovascular treatment of the common femoral (CFA) and popliteal arteries. Methods: Phoenix atherectomy was used for the treatment of 73 and 53 de novo CFA and popliteal artery lesions, respectively, in 122 consecutive patients. Safety endpoints encompassed perforation and peripheral embolization. Postprocedural endpoints included freedom from clinically driven target lesion revascularization (CD-TLR) and clinical success (an improvement of ⩾ 2 Rutherford category [RC])...

Background: Anatomy is critical in risk stratification and therapeutic decision making in coronary disease. The relationship between anatomy and outcomes is not well described in PAD. We sought to develop an angiographic core lab within the VOYAGER-PAD trial. The current report describes the methods of creating this core lab, its study population, and baseline anatomic variables. Methods: Patients undergoing lower-extremity revascularization for symptomatic PAD were randomized in VOYAGER-PAD. The median follow up was 2...

Introduction: Takayasu arteritis (TA) is associated with microvascularization of the wall of large arteries and is related to inflammation. Ultrasound localization microscopy (ULM), combining ultrafast ultrasound imaging with microbubble (MB) injection, can track the path of MBs within the arterial wall and thus provide imaging of the vasa vasorum. From the analysis of MB tracks in the common carotid arteries of patients with active TA, we report the presence of microvessels in connection with the carotid lumen (i...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a relevant clinical problem due to the risk of rupture of progressively dilated infrarenal aorta. It is characterized by degradation of elastic fibers, extracellular matrix, and inflammation of the arterial wall. Though neutrophil infiltration is a known feature of AAA, markers of neutrophil activation are scarcely analyzed; hence, the main objective of this study. METHODS: Plasma levels of main neutrophil activation markers were quantified in patients with AAA and a double control group (CTL) formed by healthy volunteers (HV) and patients with severe atherosclerosis submitted for carotid endarterectomy (CE)...
