In this paper, the high potential of varactor-based dynamic load modulation (DLM) techniques for wideband cellular applications is demonstrated. A systematic design procedure is proposed to ensure high-efficiency wideband performance. It incorporates harmonically tuned power amplifier (PA) concepts and tunable matching techniques in an integrated design. A(More)
To determine the efficacy, safety and long-term results of crural artery percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in limbs with chronic critical limb ischemia (CLI). Patients undergoing crural artery PTA due to CLI were followed at regular clinic visits with ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) measurements. PTA of the crural arteries was attempted(More)
In 92 diabetic and 175 non-diabetic patients undergoing 336 femoropopliteal or femorodistal bypass procedures, 1- and 3-year cumulative life-table patency, limb salvage, and survival rates were comparatively analysed. The peroperative mortality rate was significantly higher in diabetic patients (5% compared to 1.4%, p < 0.001). The cumulative graft patency(More)
Case records of 2026 patients operated on because of abdominal aortic aneurysms from 11 Swedish Vascular Centers were reviewed and revealed 98 cases (4.8%) of inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm. Also included in this case-control study was an analysis of a randomized group of 82 patients from the same centers who had noninflammatory abdominal aortic(More)
Factors determining the outcome for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) were analysed in a retrospective population-based study of 187 consecutively diagnosed AAAs at one hospital during a 9-year period. All aneurysms were diagnosed by ultrasound, and those cases that were not primarily operated upon, were followed by repeat ultrasound(More)
Conventional treatment of deep venous insufficiency results in a rather high failure rate. The introduction of methods for surgical repair of incompetent deep vein valves has implied new possibilities for active treatment and has added increased knowledge to venous pathophysiology. This study summarizes our clinical experience with surgical reconstruction(More)
The Swedish Ticlopidine Multicentre Study (STIMS) was a double-blind placebo-controlled trial designed to determine whether ticlopidine, a platelet antiaggregatory agent, reduces the incidence of myocardial infarction, stroke and transitory ischaemic attacks in patients with intermittent claudication. A total of 687 patients was monitored for a minimum of 5(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the atherosclerotic involvement of lower leg and foot arteries in patients undergoing infrainguinal bypass grafting. SETTING Department of Surgery, University Hospital. PATIENTS Among 282 limbs (267 patients), fifty limbs belonged to hypertensive nondiabetics (Group A), 39 to hypertensive diabetics (Group B), 129 to normotensive(More)
Forty patients with symptomatic aortoiliac and/or femoropopliteal occlusive arterial disease subjected to angiography were studied with duplex ultrasonography. The duplex scanning of the aortic, iliac, femoral and popliteal segments had a sensitivity of 93% in detecting significant stenoses and a specificity of 91%. The positive and negative predictive(More)
