PURPOSE To assess the outcome of subintimal angioplasty in treating isolated infragenicular arterial disease in patients with severe lower limb ischemia. METHODS A retrospective study reviewed 67 consecutive patients (39 men; mean age 76 years, range 41-96) who underwent infragenicular subintimal angioplasty between March 1997 and May 2000 for ischemia in(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite advances in surgery, anaesthesia, and critical care, mortality from ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) has not decreased over the last 20 years. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of ruptured AAAs is an alternative to open repair, which may improve outcome. However, a computed tomography (CT) scan is usually required to assess(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical outcome of subintimal angioplasty in diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) compared to nondiabetics irrespective of the patency status of the treated arteries. METHODS The records of 99 consecutive patients (53 men; median age 78.5 years, range 42-92) suffering from CLI who underwent primary infrainguinal(More)
PURPOSE To audit our experience with ultrasound-guided thrombin injection for the treatment of iatrogenic femoral artery pseudoaneurysms. METHODS A retrospective study of 85 consecutive patients undergoing percutaneous ultrasound-guided thrombin injection of post-catheterization femoral pseudoaneurysms during the period January 2002 to May 2007. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND Because subintimal angioplasty (SA) is a technique that can achieve recanalization of long arterial occlusions, it is considered an alternative to lower limb bypass operations. The aim of this prospective study was to identify the risk factors that affect patency of SA in patients suffering from critical limb ischemia (CLI). METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
PURPOSE To assess the role of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) to treat critical limb ischemia (CLI) and to relate the changing experience with endovascular treatment of this condition in a major vascular unit. METHODS A prospective study was performed involving 110 consecutive patients (57 women; mean age 76 years, range 57-99) undergoing(More)
BACKGROUND Peripheral angioplasty is increasingly the first choice intervention in patients with peripheral vascular disease. The aim of the current study was to audit prospectively all major complications, especially the requirement for emergency surgical intervention. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective audit of outcome after peripheral angioplasty in(More)
The operative mortality following conventional abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair has not fallen significantly over the past two decades. Since its inception in 1991, endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has provided an alternative to open AAA repair and perhaps an opportunity to improve operative mortality. Two recent large randomised trials have(More)
The relationship between anti-parasite IgA antibody levels in plasma and the periparturient egg rise in sheep was investigated. Ostertagia circumcincta larvae (5000 third stage larvae three times weekly) were administered to three groups of seven adult immune ewes from 12 weeks before until three weeks after lambing (group 1) or from six (group 2) or 14(More)
The involvement of prolactin in the periparturient rise in the faecal nematode egg count in sheep was investigated. Ostertagia circumcincta larvae (5000 third stage larvae three times weekly) were administered to adult immune ewes from three weeks before parturition to three weeks afterwards. Ten ewes were injected twice daily with(More)
