The CEAP classification for chronic venous disorders (CVD) was developed in 1994 by an international ad hoc committee of the American Venous Forum, endorsed by the Society for Vascular Surgery, and incorporated into "Reporting Standards in Venous Disease" in 1995. Today most published clinical papers on CVD use all or portions of CEAP. Rather than have it(More)
Brain uptake of antipyrine, water and ethanol was studied in rats under normo-, hypo- and hypercapnic conditions. Brain uptake of D- and L-lactate was studied in normal rats. The uptake was determined with the Oldendorf method, using single common carotid arterial injections of a mixture of -14C-labeled test substance and tritiated reference substance. The(More)

In 2001, consensus meetings on traveller's thrombosis were held in Vienna and Berlin. The results of these conferences were subsequently published in VASA 2002. In 2006 a follow-up conference was organized in Hall, Tirol, Austria, in order to review new and emerging data and to update the conclusions and recommendations of the 2001 meetings. Prior to the(More)
Swelling is known to occur after peripheral revascularization. In this study of 14 patients undergoing revascularization of the popliteal artery for severe ischaemia, leg swelling and intramuscular pressure were recorded before and after operation. Calf circumference increased with a maximum swelling of 3.9 +/- 1.1 cm on postoperative day 6. There was a(More)
Incomplete ischaemia was caused by clamping the aorta during reconstructive vascular surgery. After restoration of the blood flow extensive metabolic and morphological changes in the muscle tissue were observed. The adenylate (ATP + ADP + AMP) and the creatine (PCr + Cr) pools declined 30-40% and the energy charge of the adenine nucleotides dropped(More)
To determine the chronological changes of venous physiology following major thromboses, 20 patients were repeatedly examined for over 5 years after an acute ilio-femoral thrombosis which was treated with conventional anticoagulation. Radionuclide angiography showed that 70% of the patients had obstructive lesions of the iliac vein with only minor changes(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of the expanded National Venous Screening Program (NVSP) as administered by the American Venous Forum. METHODS Eighty-three physicians across 40 states participated in screening Americans for venous disease. The NVSP instrument included demographics, venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk assessment, quality-of-life (QOL)(More)
Seventy patients with iliofemoral vein thrombosis were operated on with thrombectomy and a temporary arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Diagnosis was always verified with a three-stage venography. The result of the treatment was evaluated with arteriovenography before closing the AVF at a second operation. The AVF stayed patent in 85% and occluded in 15% of the(More)
