PURPOSE It is important to know the normal diameter of artery throughout the body so that clinicians are able to determine when an artery becomes aneurysmal. However, there are no previous studies on the normal diameter of arteries in the general Korean population. The purpose of this article is to determine the normal reference diameters of the abdominal(More)
Multilevel revascularization, using a combination of endovascular and open (hybrid) surgery, is increasingly being used. Hybrid surgery allows complex anatomy to be treated by minimally invasive procedures in medically high risk patients. The aim of the present study was to report a novel hybrid surgery for lesions in the multilevel lower extremity arteries(More)
PURPOSE Ureteroscopic stone removal is frequently used to remove ureteral stones. Mucosal edema and bleeding are the two most important obstacles to a successful operation. This study analyzed relationships between unenhanced computed tomography (UECT) findings and ureteroscopic findings to determine whether ureteroscopic results could be predicted(More)
PURPOSE Increased saphenous vein diameter is a common consequence of saphenous vein reflux. Until now, there have been no reports about the correlation between diameter and reflux of saphenous vein in Korea. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between saphenous vein reflux and diameter changes. METHODS From April 2009 to August 2012,(More)
PURPOSE Intraoperative assessment of tissue perfusion is important to predict wound healing or improvement of symptoms in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or vascular trauma. There is no widely accepted standard for intraoperative measurement of tissue perfusion. Here, we report the use of indocyanine green (ICG)-based angiography to(More)
Lower extremity deep vein thrombosis is a serious medical condition that can result in death or major disability due to pulmonary embolism or post-thrombotic syndrome. Appropriate diagnosis and treatment are required to improve symptoms and salvage the affected limb. Early thrombus clearance rapidly resolves symptoms related to venous obstruction, restores(More)
PURPOSE Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) has been a major public health issue in the elderly. Advances in endovascular surgery have led to a substantial shift in the management of PAD. Although the nationwide trend of PAD treatment in the Western countries was reported, limited data have been available on this in Korea. This study examined the national(More)
PURPOSE Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has gained popularity for treatment of varicose veins. The diameter of the saphenous vein should be considered before RFA because occlusion of the vein may differ depending on its diameter. Until now, however, there have been few data about the correlation between the diameter of the saphenous vein and the stump length(More)
During the endovascular repair of aortoiliac aneu-rysm, bilateral internal iliac artery (IIA) occlusion may give rise to significant morbidities such as ischemia of buttock or sigmoid colon and erectile dysfunction. Open and endovascular approaches are used to maintain IIA circulation in such cases. The present report describes the cases of two patients who(More)
