OBJECTIVES To assess the diagnosis and outcome of a haemodynamic strategy for the treatment of primary varicose veins associated with anterograde diastolic flow (ADF) in the Giacomini vein (GV). METHODS ADF in the GV, with the escape point located at the saphenopopliteal junction, was demonstrated in 15 patients (15 limbs) by duplex ultrasound. No other(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this randomized study was to compare the efficacy of the CHIVA method for the treatment of varicose veins with respect to the standard treatment of stripping. CONTEXT Varicose veins are a sign of chronic venous disorder. For over a century, varicose veins have been treated with surgical ablative techniques, with stripping being(More)
INTRODUCTION The possibility of diagnosing carotid stenosis and carrying out surgery without arteriography has increased with the use of different diagnostic methods. The eco-Doppler has been shown to be a useful method, although it requires previous individualised validation. OBJECTIVE We aim to validate our Vascular Diagnostic Laboratory in the(More)
Authors explain their experiences with eight patients (14 affected limbs) with a popliteal artery entrapment syndrome. Classification, diagnosis and treatment were reviewed. Six limbs, with any malformation and presenting as a unique sign an important hypertrophy of their intern gastrocnemius muscle, couldn't be classified. As a result, a new classification(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a protocol for normalizing blood glucose levels in diabetic patients by subcutaneously administering rapid-acting insulin before administering (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) without hindering the quality of PET/computed tomography (CT) studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 120 patients, who(More)
The purpose of this nonrandomized case-review study was to compare the outcome of stripping and CHIVA for treatment of varicose veins in the lower extremities in our department. Outcome was evaluated by independent physicians. A total of 85 patients underwent saphenous vein stripping in association with phlebectomy and 90 patients underwent CHIVA cure. The(More)
INTRODUCTION In the literature only seven cases have been published describing a mobile carotid plaque, and lack of precise description makes it difficult to differentiate these lesions from mobile thrombotic lesions. The natural history of these lesions is not known and their treatment is controversial, although there is a tendency to choose the type of(More)
OBJECTIVES to assess the outcome of a conservative and haemodynamic method for insufficient veins on an ambulatory basis (French acronym, "CHIVA") with preservation of the greater saphenous vein (GSV) for treatment of primary varicose veins. METHODS duplex incompetence of the sapheno-femoral junction (SFJ) and the GSV trunk, with the re-entry perforating(More)
