These studies report a considerable mortality and a high rate of intracranial hemorrhages when(More)

We retrospectively investigated efficacy and safety of fixed low-dose ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis (USAT) for intermediate- and high-risk PE. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-two patients (65 ± 14 years) of whom 14 had high-risk PE (troponin(More)
BACKGROUND Despite use of arterial closure devices (APCDs) and thrombin injection , surgery is needed at times to repair femoral pseudoaneurysms (FPA) in patients undergoing endovascular interventions. We analysed the indications and results of surgical repair in a tertiary referral center performing more than 6.000 angiographies and/or interventions(More)
INTRODUCTION The optimal management of patients with symptomatic severe ostial vertebral artery stenosis (OVAS) is currently unclear. We analyzed the long-term outcome of consecutive patients with OVAS who received either medical treatment (MT) or vertebral artery stenting (VAS). METHODS Thirty-nine (>70%) patients with severe OVAS were followed for a(More)
