The impact of cardiovascular comorbidity on the outcome of surgery for stage I and II non-small-cell lung cancer.
OBJECTIVE The association between lung malignancy and cardiovascular disease has been frequently reported though its therapeutic and prognostic implications not thoroughly analyzed. This study aimsExpand
Conservative treatment of aortic graft infection.
An infected prosthetic graft of the aorta is still among the most unwelcome and challenging complications that the vascular surgeon has to tackle. Despite being uncommon, the reported incidenceExpand
Carotid endarterectomy in diabetic patients.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the current study was to identify the possible short- and long-term effects of diabetes on the outcome of carotid endarterectomy. METHODS Medical records were reviewed forExpand
Popliteal artery aneurysms. Factors associated with thromboembolism and graft failure.
AIM The purpose of this study was to review our experience with popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAS) and to identify the major factors associated with thromboembolism of PAAS and failure of grafts afterExpand
Emergency Endograft Placement for Recurrent Aortocaval Fistula after Conventional AAA Repair
Purpose: To report a novel case in which a stent-graft was used to emergently treat an aortocaval fistula that recurred after conventional abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. Case Report: AExpand
Transcranial Doppler assessment of the functional effects of symptomatic carotid stenosis
Mean flow velocity changes in the middle cerebral arteries (MCAs) during a 2-minute thumb-to-finger opposition task were measured by means of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in patients withExpand
On the Critical Lower Level of Cerebral Blood Flow in Man with Particular Reference to Carotid Surgery
D URING carotid endarterectomy temporary clamping of one carotid artery is necessary. If no shunt is used during clamping blood supply to the ipsilateral hemisphere must be maintained via theExpand
Effects of hypercapnia on cerebral blood flow during the clamping of the carotid arteries in surgical management of cerebrovascular insufficiency
AT PRESENT, there is clear experimental and clinical evidence that hypercapnia increases cerebral blood flow (CBF) . l 4 Therefore, carbon dioxide has been employed in the surgical treatment ofExpand
Assessment of renal function during trimetaphan infusion in prognostic evaluation of surgical management of renovascular hypertension.
1. Differential renal function tests and renography were carried out during infusions of trimetaphan camsylate (Arfonad, Roche) in twenty-three patients with renovascular hypertension resulting fromExpand
Cerebral haemodynamics during carotid cross-clamping.
Carotid artery cross-clamping ischaemia during carotid endarterectomy (CEA) causes 5-30% of perioperative neurological deficits. This study was performed to identify possible clinical situations atExpand
