BACKGROUND Radiofrequency segmental thermal ablation (RSTA) has become a commonly used technology for occlusion of incompetent great saphenous veins (GSVs). Midterm results and data on clinical parameters are still lacking. METHODS A prospective multicenteral trial monitored 295 RSTA-treated GSVs for 36 months. Clinical control visits included flow and(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to explore the feasibility and efficacy of a new technique for sutureless vascular anastomosis, using glued prosthesis, as a sole anastomosis fixation method in rabbits. METHODS Ten rabbits were randomly selected to conduct the experiment. Five rabbits underwent direct anastomosis of infrarenal abdominal aorta,(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, several methods and new techniques have been studied and proposed for establishment of sutureless vascular anastomoses, streaming use of sutureless vascular surgery in the future. PRESENTATION OF THE HYPOTHESIS The new vascular connector (NVC) is a hypothetical design of a vascular device, proposed for creation and maintenance(More)
