OBJECTIVE To determine the symptoms in patients who presented with persistent or recurrent backache or leg pain after implantation of an artificial disc prosthesis. DESIGN Descriptive. METHOD During the past II years in the Maastricht University Hospital (n=65) and the Utrecht University Medical Centre (n=2), 67 patients were seen with persistent or(More)
Non-heart-beating donor (NHBD) kidneys may substantially expand the donor pool, but many transplant centers are reluctant to use these kidneys because of the relatively high incidence of primary nonfunction (PNF). In heart-beating donor kidneys, intravascular fluid depletion during transplant surgery is associated with delayed graft function (DGF).(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the best location to measure the arterial peak flow (APF) in patients with peripheral arterial disease in order to facilitate clinical standardization. METHODS Two hundred and fifty-nine patients with varying degrees of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and 48 patients without PAD were included. All patients underwent magnetic(More)
Since the introduction of endovascular techniques for the treatment of aortic pathologies, clinical application of these lesser invasive procedures has increased exponentially during the last two decades and changed daily vascular practice completely. Starting in the infra-renal aorta, the indications for endovascular repair have gradually extended to the(More)
OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND Administration of iodinated contrast media during endovascular procedures for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) may cause contrast induced nephropathy (CIN). The aim of the present study was to establish the incidence of CIN after these procedures and to study its association with long-term loss of kidney function, cardiovascular(More)
BACKGROUND The erosion of the early mortality advantage of elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) compared with open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm remains without a satisfactory explanation. METHODS An individual-patient data meta-analysis of four multicentre randomized trials of EVAR versus open repair was conducted to a prespecified analysis(More)
OBJECTIVES Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is a technique in which a mixture of sclerosing drug and gas is used to treat varicose veins. Several authors have demonstrated transient systemic effects after UGFS. These effects are not well understood but probably originate from a systemic distribution of the sclerosing foam. Therefore, safety(More)
