OBJECTIVE: To review our multi-institutional experience with endovascular therapy for right subclavian artery occlusive disease and to evaluate the long-term outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated all patients with right subclavian artery stenosis and occlusive disease who underwent endovascular therapy between March 2014 and September 2022 at two institutions. Patient baseline demographics, lesion characteristics, treatment strategies, and in-hospital and follow-up outcomes were prospectively collected and retrospectively analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Partial calcanectomy (PC) can be performed to treat chronic heel ulcers in patients with calcaneal osteomyelitis. Patients undergoing PC often have multiple comorbidities, limited mobility, and face high risk of major limb amputation. This study examined the extent of vascular diagnostic testing and interventions as well as long-term outcomes in patients undergoing PC. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on patients who underwent PC for non-healing calcaneal ulcer over a ten-year period...

OBJECTIVES: Coronary artery disease (CAD) and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are common arterial pathologies that might occur simultaneously; however, there is not enough evidence about the optimal strategy for patients with concomitant indications of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and open repair of the AAA (AAOR). This study aims to present the outcomes in low and moderate cardiac surgical risk patients who underwent one-stage or two-stage elective CABG and AAOR in a middle-income country...

OBJECTIVE: To report a medically treated case of infective aortitis with mycotic aneurysms that went on to have many years of surveillance imaging. This has not yet been documented as current recommendations for infective aortitis strongly suggest operative intervention combined with aggressive antibiotics, with very high reported mortality for non-operative management. Thus, the natural progression of sac growth during the acute infective period and in the long-term has had an opportunity to be explored...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to document the natural history of celiac artery aneurysms (CAAs). BACKGROUND: Celiac artery aneurysms are rare. Existing literature is skewed towards outcomes after intervention of large, symptomatic aneurysms but the behavior of untreated CAAs is poorly understood. METHODS: This is a single institution, retrospective analysis of patients with CAA diagnosed by CT imaging (2015-2019) identified through an institutional radiology database...

BACKGROUND: Chronic total occlusions with ambiguous proximal caps pose a challenging problem in below-the-knee artery endovascular interventions. CASE REPORT: We defined a new technique for antegrade puncture and penetration of an ambiguous proximal cap in a 52-year old male patient with a non-healing wound on his right forefoot. Anterior tibial artery (ATA) was determined as the target vessel; however, its origin and course could not be determined. A retrograde guidewire (Asahi Gladius 0...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between HALP score and post-contrast acute kidney injury (PC-AKI) and average 6-year mortality in patients undergoing endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). METHODS: 125 patients who underwent EVAR between January 2015 and December 2020 were included in our study. HALP score was calculated with the formula "hemoglobin × albumin × lymphocyte count/platelet count." In the first phase of the study, two groups were developed: those who developed PC-AKI and those who did not...

BACKGROUND: Vascular surgical site infections have been reported with an overall incidence of 5-10% for patients undergoing arterial interventions and as high as 10-20% for lower-limb bypass grafting procedures. Given that vascular surgery patients are known to be at a higher risk of postoperative wound infections and other complications, our objective was to evaluate a potential method to reduce such complications. This study compares the rate of wound healing complications between incisional negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and conventional dressings in vascular surgery patients with infra-inguinal incisions...

OBJECTIVES: EVAR is the preferred treatment modality for patients with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm with suitable anatomy. Each manufacturer of aortic stentgrafts has specific anatomic requirements. In some patients, it is not possible to adhere to the instructions for use, but alternative treatment is also not possible. In these patients, EVAR can be performed outside instructions for use. METHODS: In this study, all consecutive patients in whom an Endurant II or IIS stentgraft was used between 1 January and 31 December were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) frequently require reinterventions after lower-extremity revascularization (LER) to maintain perfusion. Current Society for Vascular Surgery guidelines define reinterventions as major or minor based on the magnitude of the procedure. While prior studies have compared primary LER procedures of different magnitudes, similar studies for reinterventions have not been performed. The objective of this study is to compare perioperative outcomes associated with major and minor reinterventions...

OBJECTIVES: Despite recent advancements in endovascular technology and proven durability of open surgeries, managing extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) with concurrent severe lower extremity (LE) arterial occlusion remains a formidable challenge. This paper introduces a comprehensive approach to addressing recurrent AIOD and LE occlusive diseases by employing modified-CERAB, inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) snorkel, and LE bypass in a challenging case.

INTRODUCTION: The femoropopliteal sector endovascular treatment is particularly challenging due to its high tortuosity and torsional forces. Better results are still needed to ensure the long-term patency of stenting in this area. The Supera stent appears to change this paradigm. METHODS: This single-center retrospective cohort study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of femoropopliteal stenting with Supera in a real-world population. Seventy-nine patients were treated between January 2015 and December 2020, and the results are reported with a median follow-up of 28 months...

INTRODUCTION: Intermittent claudication includes a wide spectrum of peripheral artery disease ranging from asymptomatic with reduced perfusion to lifestyle-limiting atherosclerotic disease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the management of claudicants with a low toe-brachial index (TBI). METHODS: This study was a retrospective review of consecutive patients that presented in 2015 with claudication and a low TBI (<0.6) monitored over 5 years. The patient demographics, co-morbidities, and vascular-related characteristics (ankle-brachial index, TBI, calcified vessels, and wounds) were collected...

OBJECTIVES: After forearm and arm cephalic veins are no longer available as options, the choices of arm vascular access between one-staged brachial-basilic vein transposition (BBAVF) and arm straight arteriovenous graft (AS-AVG) for hemodialysis are controversial. This study aims to compare outcomes between groups. METHODS: All one-staged BBAVF and AS-AVG from August 2014 to December 2019 were reviewed. In cases of suitable basilic vein of 3 mm or more present from cubital crease to axilla, one-staged BBAVF was preferred...

OBJECTIVES: Many factors affect long-term outcomes after open bypass in patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI). Ambulatory status has been suggested to be associated with clinical outcomes, but there is limited knowledge on the effect of gait speed on outcomes. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of gait speed assessed in a 6-min walk test (6MWT) on outcomes after crural and pedal bypass in patients with CLTI. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed in patients with CLTI who underwent a 6MWT at 1 month after crural and pedal bypass at a single center from 2014 to 2021...
