BACKGROUND Antibodies against Chlamydia pneumoniae are associated with an increased rate of expansion of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). Short-term follow-up trials have shown a transient reduction AAA growth rate, in macrolide treated compared with placebo. Therefore we analysed the influence of intermittent, long-term roxithromycin treatment on(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the associations between beta-blocker use and clinical outcomes (death, hospitalisation with myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke, major amputation and recurrent vascular surgery) after primary vascular reconstruction. METHODS Patients who had primary vascular surgical or endovascular reconstruction due to symptomatic peripheral(More)
BACKGROUND Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is associated with high mortality. Research suggests that statins may reduce abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) growth and improve rAAA outcomes. However, the clinical impact of statins remains uncertain in relation to both the risk and prognosis of rAAA. METHODS This nationwide, population-based, combined(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the possible age- and gender-related differences in the use of secondary medical prevention following primary vascular reconstruction in a population-based long-term follow-up study. METHODS Using information from nationwide Danish registers, we identified all patients undergoing primary vascular reconstruction in-between(More)
This study investigate the efficacy of pre-operative pain treatment for patients with hip fractures using fascia lliaca compartment block (FIB) technique performed by junior registrars (JR) as a supplement to conventional pain treatment. The FIB technique has routinely been used pre-operatively in the emergency department since 1 January 2004 for all(More)
OBJECTIVE The use of low-dose aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid [ASA]) has been suggested to attenuate growth of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), yet solid clinical evidence of this hypothesis is still missing. This study aimed to investigate whether preadmission ASA use influenced the risk of presenting with rupture of AAA (rAAA) on hospital admission and(More)
Only a few reports describe the risk of neurovascular damage following knee dislocation while trampolining. A 16 year-old male in a trampoline accident, sustained multi-ligament damage and occlusion of the popliteal artery. The occlusion did not show clinically until 24 hours after the trauma. He underwent vascular surgery (short saphenous bypass). We(More)
OBJECTIVE The implementation of evidence-based secondary medical prevention in peripheral arterial disease (PAD) patients has received increasing attention in recent years, but population-based data are sparse. This study examined the use of secondary medical prophylaxis in unselected symptomatic PAD patients in Denmark. DESIGN A nationwide follow-up(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the association between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor use and clinical outcome after primary vascular reconstruction in a population-based follow-up study. METHODS All Danish patients undergoing primary vascular surgical reconstruction between 1996 and 2007 were included. For each ACE user up to 5 nonuser was(More)
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common manifestation of symptomatic atherosclerosis that leads to a significantly elevated risk of cardiovascular events, including major limb loss, myocardial infarction, stroke and death. The prevalence proportions of PAD increase dramatically with age and appear to progress more aggressively in women than in men.(More)
