Protected carotid-artery stenting versus endarterectomy in high-risk patients.
Stenting with the use of an emboli-protection device is a less invasive revascularization strategy than endarterectomy in carotid-artery disease and among patients with severe carotidsartery stenosis and coexisting conditions, it is found that the less invasive strategy, stenting, was not inferior to endarteretomy.
The endovascular management of visceral artery aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms.
A comparison of recombinant urokinase with vascular surgery as initial treatment for acute arterial occlusion of the legs. Thrombolysis or Peripheral Arterial Surgery (TOPAS) Investigators.
Despite its association with a higher frequency of hemorrhagic complications, intraarterial infusion of urokinase reduced the need for open surgical procedures, with no significantly increased risk of amputation or death.
A comparison of thrombolytic therapy with operative revascularization in the initial treatment of acute peripheral arterial ischemia.

Percutaneous AngioJet thrombectomy in the management of extensive deep venous thrombosis.
Should patients with challenging anatomy be offered endovascular aneurysm repair?
Ultrasound-Guided Thrombin Injection for the Treatment of Postcatheterization Pseudoaneurysms
UGTI was safe and effective in 94% of patients with postcatheterization pseudoaneurysms and should be the initial treatment of choice for patients withPostcatheterized pseudoaneuysms.
The anatomy of deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremity.
The anatomic configuration of the DVT was correlated with the etiologic subgroup; postoperative DVTs were more often distal, whereas DVT developing in the setting of malignancy was more frequently proximal and often right sided.
