Fibromuscular dysplasia: state of the science and critical unanswered questions: a scientific statement from the American Heart Association.
A delay in diagnosis of fibromuscular dysplasia can lead to impaired quality of life and poor outcomes such as poorly controlled hypertension and its sequelae, TIA, stroke, dissection, or aneurysm rupture. Expand
The Society for Vascular Surgery Practice Guidelines: management of the left subclavian artery with thoracic endovascular aortic repair.
The Society for Vascular Surgery pursued development of clinical practice guidelines for the management of the left subclavian artery with thoracic endovascular aortic repair by selecting a panel of experts and conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature. Expand
Surgical intervention for complications caused by femoral artery catheterization in pediatric patients.
Although excellent operative results can be achieved in cases of non-ischemic complications, acute femoral occlusion in children younger than 2 years often leads to less satisfactory outcomes. Expand
The management of splenic artery aneurysms: experience with 23 cases.
Current criteria that call for active treatment of symptomatic or enlarging SAAs, with particular emphasis on treating women anticipating pregnancy and patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantations, are supported. Expand
Nonoperative management of visceral aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms.
Embolization as the primary treatment modality for visceral artery aneurysms should be considered in patients with the following diagnoses: pseudoaneurysms associated with pancreatitis, intrahepatic aneurYSms, most splenic artery anuerysms, and gastric, gastroduodenal, and gastroepiploic aneuryms.

A prospective evaluation of surgically treated groin complications following percutaneous cardiac procedures.
During an 18-month study period, 100 noncardiac surgical complications of a percutaneous cardiac interventional procedure were treated at Emory University Hospital, predominantly pseudoaneurysms and arteriovenous fistula. Expand

This study demonstrates that a generic approach of PTA to treat all polytetrafluoroethylene grafts with stenoses > 50% does not prolong patency and cannot be supported. Expand
Incidence and characteristics of patients with hand ischemia after a hemodialysis access procedure.
Clinical characteristics of patients with hand ischemia included long-standing insulin-dependent diabetes, chronic hypertension, peripheral arterial disease, coronary artery disease, and systemic lupus erythematosis, which are commonly found and may be markers for risk of hand ischemic manifestations after access surgery. Expand
The Society for Vascular Surgery: clinical practice guidelines for the surgical placement and maintenance of arteriovenous hemodialysis access.
A multispecialty panel was assembled to develop practice guidelines in arteriovenous access placement and maintenance with the aim of maximizing the percentage and functionality of autogenous arterioVENous accesses that are placed. Expand
