Objective assessment of venous function based on venous refilling time recorded by photoplethysmography (PPG) was done in 89 patients with postphlebitic syndrome (47), primary varicose veins (29), and after an episode of acute deep vein thrombosis (13). Limbs with symptomatic postphlebitic changes had a shortened venous refilling time of 15.6 +/- 11 seconds(More)
A multicenter study was conducted to evaluate a new temporary caval filter (Tempofilter) designed to be implanted for up to 6 weeks. A total of 66 patients with a mean age of 51.8 years were enrolled in the study. All had documented high risk of pulmonary embolism: severe deep venous thrombosis in 89.5% of cases and previous symptomatic pulmonary embolism(More)
From September 1985 to December 1986, 100 patients undergoing percutaneous placement of a transvenous "LGM" caval filter were included in a multicenter prospective trial. Peripheral venograms completed by pulmonary arteriography or scintigraphy were obtained for all patients. Eighty-five patients had experienced pulmonary embolism, 59 had iliocaval(More)
The ability of a heterotopic graft to prolong life in animals dying in hepatic coma due to liver necrosis has never been definitely established. Acute hepatic failure was produced in 15 dogs by an hour of total interruption of the hepatic blood supply. Nine dogs received an intrathoracic hepatic homograft concurrently. Nontransplanted dogs died within 21(More)
From October 1978 to June 1983, 64 sequential bypass grafts were performed in 59 patients with limb-threatening ischemia. These patients were classified into three study groups as follows: reversed saphenous vein graft alone (12), composite sequential (proximal polytetrafluoroethylene [PTFE] and distal vein) graft (30), and PTFE graft in entirety (22).(More)
We have evaluated the efficacy of the delayed forced air warming during abdominal aortic surgery in 18 patients. Patients were allocated randomly to one of two groups: the control group (n = 9) received no intraoperative warming device; the Bair-Hugger group (n = 9) had active skin surface warming with an upper body cover. The device was activated when core(More)
OBJECTIVES The study aims to assess the feasibility and midterm outcome of trans-peritoneal laparoscopy for coeliac artery compression syndrome (CACS). DESIGN Retrospective chart review involving four European vascular surgery departments and two surgical teams. MATERIALS AND METHODS charts for patients who underwent laparoscopy for symptomatic CACS(More)
BACKGROUND Since the introduction of endovascular repair (EVR) for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), clinical evaluation has been under way in many countries throughout the world. The main purpose of this retrospective study was to determine outcome of EVR with aortic endovascular prostheses (AEPs) and to evaluate the extent to which French(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare late patency after direct and crossover bypass in good-risk patients with unilateral iliac occlusive disease not amenable to angioplasty. METHODS Between May 1986 and March 1991, 143 patients with unilateral iliac artery occlusive disease and disabling claudication were randomized into two surgical treatment groups, ie, crossover(More)
ACampylobacter fetus strain was isolated from an abdominal aortic aneurysm in a 56-year-old man who had no significant chronic illness except arteriosclerosis. The strain was identified on the basis of the usual taxonomic markers and fatty acid profiles. The patient's immunological status regardingCampylobacter fetus was studied by Western blot. The strong(More)
