PURPOSE To analyze the complications of internal iliac artery (IIA) embolization in conjunction with stent-graft treatment of aortoiliac aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-one patients with aortoiliac (n = 47) or iliac (n = 24) aneurysms were treated with endoluminal placement of stent-grafts. Thirty-two patients (31 men, one woman; mean age, 73(More)
It is important for vascular surgeons to be familiar with reflex sympathetic dystrophy because they may be called on to participate in the evaluation and treatment of patients with this syndrome. Over a 3 1/2-year period, 35 patients, initially evaluated by a team of pain experts, were referred for surgical sympathectomy for reflex sympathetic dystrophy.(More)
OBJECTIVE Treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with high-risk anatomy (neck length <10-15 mm, neck angle >60°) using commercially available devices has become increasingly common with expanding institutional experience. We examined whether placement of approved devices in short angled necks provides acceptable durability at early and intermediate time(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate our experience with the diagnosis and management of vascular injuries in a group of high-performance athletes. METHODS Between June 1994 and June 2000, we treated 26 patients who sustained vascular complications as a result of athletic competition. Clinical presentation, type of athletic competition,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical predictors associated with long-term thrombotic recurrences necessitating surgical intervention after initial success with nonoperative management of patients with primary subclavian vein thrombosis. METHODS Sixty-four patients treated for Paget-Schroetter syndrome from 1996 to 2005 at our(More)
Infection is the most dreaded complication associated with implantation of a prosthetic arterial graft. Although remote bypass followed by complete removal of the infected prosthesis has proven to be a satisfactory method of treatment, in certain instances remote bypass alone is not feasible and other modes of surgical treatment must be employed.

A left retroperitoneal approach has been developed and used to perform a renal-splenic shunt for portal decompression in seven patients with massive variceal hemorrhage. In each patient, at least one intra-abdominal finding contraindicated a conventional transperitoneal portasystemic shunt. Retroperitoneal approach avoided possible complications and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of thrombotic complications in patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) who were treated with percutaneous inferior vena caval interruption in place of anticoagulation. METHODS A retrospective review of all percutaneously placed inferior vena cava filters for 1 year, August 1993 through July(More)
The lack of a rapid, noninvasive, and accurate method to confirm or rule out prosthetic graft infection continues to constitute a compelling and vexing clinical problem. A host of adjunctive diagnostic techniques has been used in the past, but early promising results subsequently have usually not yielded acceptable sensitivity (reflecting false negatives)(More)
