Infection of arterial reconstructions is associated with high rates of mortality and limb loss despite optimal treatment. Lower extremity revascularization procedures performed at a teaching hospital were reviewed to identify risk factors associated with wound infection. Medical records, postoperative infection surveillance forms, and a computerized(More)
OBJECTIVES In this era of managed health care, third-party payers insist that surgeons minimize hospital stay even after major operations such as aortic surgery. We attempted to identify risk factors that predict prolonged hospital length of stay (LOS) so that realistic expectations can be established for these patients who frequently are at high-risk. (More)
Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been predominantly accomplished by teams of multidisciplinary interventionalists, frequently under the primary direction of cardiologists and radiologists. The purpose of this paper was to examine the feasibility and safety of an initial experience of EVARs performed by vascular surgeons at a single(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of our study was to investigate the diagnostic value of scans with 99mTc(V)-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) to localize bone and joint infection compared with scans using 67Ga. METHODS Thirty-six patients referred for investigation of bone and joint infection were studied. In all patients, a bone scan was obtained initially.(More)
Surgical management of juxtarenal aortic (JR-Ao) aneurysms and occlusive disease may include supraceliac aortic clamping, a retroperitoneal approach, or medial visceral rotation. The authors report their results using preferential direct suprarenal aortic clamping via a midline transperitoneal incision. Between July 1, 1992, and July 31, 2001, they treated(More)
A three-year-old child presented to our emergency department with a hemiparesis five days following the accidental laceration of her neck with a piece of glass. The laceration had been thought to be superficial when she was initially evaluated. When seen again three days following the injury because of right-sided weakness, computerized tomography of her(More)
