OBJECTIVES To investigate the impact of clinical risk factors, plasma homocysteine and haemostatic variables on the results after endovascular treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis of the common iliac artery. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENTS AND METHOD The study included 139 technically successful(More)
OBJECTIVES to present the first 100 consecutive endograft implantations for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in Norway. DESIGN retrospective study of 100 consecutive graft implantations, performed at five University Hospitals during 1995 to 1997. MATERIAL one hundred patients with a median age of 70 years were included. In all patients the Vanguard(More)
Aneurysms of the visceral arteries are rare. Traditional treatment has been surgical or endovascular with coil embolization. Recently, however, reports on endovascular therapy with stent-grafts have been published. We report the case of a 61-year-old man who was successfully treated with a stent-graft for a symptomatic combined celiac/hepatic artery(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relationship between plasma homocysteine and other haemostatic variables and restenoses or reocclusions after endovascular treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis of the above-knee femoro-popliteal artery. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 103(More)
Ultrasound is the preferred imaging modality in diagnosis of vascular complications following cardiac catheterization and intervention. In some cases, however, bleeding surrounding the femoral vessels, may severely distort the color Doppler images, making detection of venous complications especially difficult. This report refers to such a case where(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms has acquired a widespread application. We present the results of endovascular treatment of infrarenal, abdominal aortic aneurysms in our hospital from 1995 through 2002. MATERIAL AND METHOD Seventy-one stent graft procedures were performed on 69 patients (64 men), mean age 72 years (range 48-96 years).(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the results of endovascular treatment of symptomatic, atherosclerotic lesions of the infrarenal aorta. PATIENTS AND METHOD This is a retrospective study including 30 procedures performed on 25 patients in the period from 1990 through 2003. There were 16 women (64%) and 9 men, with a mean age of 55 years (range 35-81 years). The(More)
