The use of femoral artery closure devices to obtain hemostasis after percutaneous catheterization has become widespread because of their proven feasibility in combination with patient-related advantages. Since 2002 more than 6,500 patients have undergone either diagnostic angiography or therapeutic intervention via the femoral route with an Angioseal(More)
PURPOSE Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is one of the treatment options for localized obstruction of the subclavian artery. To document long-term durability of this kind of PTA we report a 10-year single-center experience in 110 patients. METHODS From January 1993 to July 2003, 110 patients (72 women; mean age, 62 +/- 10 years) underwent PTA(More)
During an 8-year period, 355 patients underwent endovascular repair of mainly true (97%) infrarenal aneurysms. After a mean follow-up of 48 months, 11 (3.1%) patients required conversion to open repair and 10 were eligible for open surgical intervention. Via a midline incision, explantation of the endograft was performed by using an infrarenal aortotomy.(More)
PURPOSE To describe the short-term consequences of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) on renal function after infrarenal (IR) versus transrenal (TR) stent-graft fixation. METHODS Between December 1996 and January 2006, 369 consecutive patients were treated with EVAR. All patients had an AneuRx or a Talent stent-graft implanted using IR (AneuRx) or(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the potential influence of intraoperative digital subtraction angiography (DSA) on surgical strategy after balloon thromboembolectomy for acute lower limb ischemia. METHODS Thirty-six consecutive patients with critical limb ischemia were treated with balloon catheter thromboembolectomy assessed by intraoperative digital subtraction(More)
Objectives Endovascular treatment of pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm has gained terrain over the past decade, despite the substantial need for reinterventions during follow-up. However, open repair is still a well-established treatment option. With the current study we report the results of a consecutive series of elective primary open pararenal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term single-center results with the AneuRx stent-graft in endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair (EVAR). METHODS Between December 1996 and August 2003, 212 patients (197 men; mean age 71.3+/-7.0 years) were treated with the AneuRx stent-graft for an infrarenal AAA. Postoperatively, patients were enrolled in a(More)
OBJECTIVES This study compared transcranial Doppler (TCD) imaging and outcomes of carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) in stenosis after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) vs primary atherosclerotic stenoses. METHODS A prospectively accumulated database of 812 CAS procedures was analyzed retrospectively. Two groups were created. Group 1 had 72 restenoses at a(More)
The objective was to evaluate our results on functional outcome for both through-knee amputations and above-knee amputations. Functional outcome was measured using the Special Interest Group in Amputee Medicine score, which focuses on walking distance and use of prosthesis. From 1997 to 2006, 39 through-knee amputations (53%) and 34 above-knee amputations(More)
