Acute limb ischemia secondary to peripheral arterial thrombosis is a relatively uncommon but ominous form of vascular accident. Select inherited and acquired hypercoagulable states appear to contribute to an initial arterial thrombosis and, more importantly, recurrent thrombotic events. Mounting interest in hypercoagulability, the increased availability of(More)
Pasteurella multocida (Robert type-1) was grown on tryptose sucrose yeast (TSY) broth in a fermenter. A sterilised air was provided that potentiated the density of the culture (5 x 10 organisms/ml). The culture was inactivated with formalin (0.5% ). The alum precipitated and oil based haemorrhagic septicaemia vaccines (APHSV and OBHSV) were prepared and(More)
Peripheral arterial disease predicts future cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. Conventional methods of assessment might underestimate its true prevalence. We sought to determine whether a postexercise ankle-brachial index (ABI), not only improved peripheral arterial disease detection, but also independently predicted death. This was an(More)
Superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome is associated with advanced malignancy of the chest. Extensive experience is published in the literature regarding the use of endovascular intervention for symptomatic relief in these individuals with limited survival. Symptomatic SVC obstruction may occur from benign conditions that may not alter life expectancy. There are(More)
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) involving the upper extremities, chest, and neck has become appreciated as a significant cause of morbidity, especially in individuals with central venous access devices (CVAD). Like DVT involving the leg and pelvic veins, axillo-subclavian vein thrombosis can result in pulmonary embolism, post-thrombotic syndrome, and venous(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to evaluate clinical outcomes among peripheral arterial disease (PAD) patients following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND A significant proportion of patients with coronary artery disease undergoing PCI have concomitant PAD, which may be associated with worse outcomes. METHODS We performed a pooled analysis of 8(More)
