Superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) of the lower extremities is a common ailment seen in outpatient offices of vascular medicine and surgery practices. This study of 60 consecutive outpatients was carried out to examine the incidence of concomitant deep venous thrombosis (DVT), risk factors associated with SVT, recurrence of SVT and/or new DVT, and the role(More)
Abdominal aortic aneurysms have an incidence that is approximately four to six times higher in men than in women. However, the incidence in women also rises with older age, although starting later in life than in men. There are also sex differences in the risk of rupture and in outcomes after endovascular and open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Various(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical effectiveness of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is well established. But the economic impact of CEA and carotid artery stenting (CAS) is still uncertain. The objective of this study was to compare hospital costs and reimbursement for CAS and CEA. STUDY DESIGN We performed a retrospective database analysis on pair-matched patients who(More)
This report describes a new approach for management of iliac vein injury. These injuries are often difficult to expose, and the associated hemorrhage further hinders visualization and subsequent repair. In this case, the use of an endovascular balloon from groin access controlled venous hemorrhage and permitted a primary repair of a torn left iliac vein. We(More)
OBJECTIVE Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) wall stiffness has been suggested to be an important factor in the overall rupture risk assessment compared with anatomic measure. We hypothesize that AAA diameter will have no correlation to AAA wall stiffness. The aim of this study is to (1) determine magnetic resonance elastography (MRE)-derived aortic wall(More)
Evolving changes in health care in the United States are causing new graduates and self-employed physicians to consider employment with large groups and health systems. Familiarity with the principles, proper conduct, and mechanics of negotiating an employment agreement will be important for vascular surgeons making such a decision. The various components(More)
