BACKGROUND Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has been advocated as an alternative to redo surgery for patients with post-carotid endarterectomy (CEA) stenosis. This study compares early and late clinical outcomes for both groups. METHODS This study analyzes 192 patients: 72 had reoperation (Group A) and 120 had CAS for post-CEA stenosis (Group B). Patients(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have specifically correlated the amount of thrombus in the aneurysm sac and the presence of type II endoleaks (TIIE). This study examined the correlation of preoperative thrombus load and location to the incidence of TIIE and late sac regression. METHODS Prospectively collected data from 266 endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)(More)
BACKGROUND Several published studies have reported differing results of renal duplex ultrasound (RDU) imaging in detecting significant renal artery stenosis (RAS) using different Doppler parameters. This study is the largest to date to compare RDU imaging vs angiography and assess various published Doppler criteria. METHODS RDU imaging and angiography(More)
Percutaneous transluminal methods of revascularization for chronic limb ischemia have traditionally been used as an adjunctive or secondary mode of treatment. This study examines the outcomes of patients treated via endovascular methods as the primary form of treatment. The records of 66 patients (average age, 71.3 years; range, 53 to 92) with chronic limb(More)
BACKGROUND Clinicians have relied on published institutional experience for interpreting carotid duplex ultrasound studies (CDUS). This study will validate the ultrasound imaging consensus criteria published in 2003. METHODS The CDUS and angiography results of 376 carotid arteries were analyzed. Receiver-operating characteristic (ROCs) curves were used to(More)
BACKGROUND Several published studies with a small sample size have reported differing results of duplex ultrasound (DUS) utilizing different threshold velocities in detecting significant stenosis of superior mesenteric (SMA) or celiac arteries (CA). The present study is based on the largest number of mesenteric duplex/angiography correlations reported to(More)
Traumatic nonanastomtic disruption of an axillofemoral bypass graft (AFBG) is a relatively rare entity. However, we are reporting on an 82-year-old female who presented with a pulsating mass on her left side, which was noticed about 2 weeks after she fell on her side. The patient had undergone an ABFG about 15 years earlier for limb revascularization, and(More)
May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is an anatomically variable condition of venous outflow obstruction caused by extrinsic compression. Although this syndrome is rare, its prevalence is likely underestimated. The pathology of this condition is secondary to a partial obstruction of the common iliac vein by an overlying common iliac artery with subsequent entrapment(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is not generally recommended for patients with hostile neck anatomy. This study analyzed the clinical implications of various clinical features of proximal aortic neck anatomy. METHODS Prospectively collected data from 258 EVAR patients using modular devices were analyzed. Patients were classified as having(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate short and long-term outcomes of percutaneous transluminal intervention in patients with symptomatic renal artery stenosis due to fibromuscular dysplasia (RAFMD) and/or the combination of RAFMD with aorto-ostial atherosclerotic disease. METHODS A retrospective analysis of all patients with renal artery(More)
