The angiosome concept provides practical information regarding the vascular anatomy of reconstructive and vascular surgery for the treatment of peripheral arterial occlusive disease and, particularly, critical lower limb ischemia.The aim of the study was to confirm the efficacy of direct revascularization with the angiosome concept (DR) for lower limb(More)
INTRODUCTION The efficacy of antiplatelet agents in preventing thrombosis in newly formed arteriovenous graft (AVG) in hemodialysis (HD) patients has been extensively examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effect of initiation of antiplatelet medications on preventing AVG thrombosis recurrence after surgical thrombectomy for acute(More)
BACKGROUND The selection of ideal candidates for surgical intervention among patients with parapneumonic pleural effusion remains challenging. In this retrospective study, we sought to identify the main predictors of surgical treatment and devise a simple scoring system to guide surgical decision-making. METHOD Between 2005 and 2014, we identified 276(More)
Background. To assess whether the visit-to-visit variability in blood pressure (BP) is a risk factor of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) 10 years after diagnosis. Methods. The electronic medical records of 825 patients, who were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) during 2000-2002 and regularly(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of antiplatelet agents on preventing arteriovenous (AV) fistulae thrombosis in hemodialysis (HD) patients after surgical thrombectomy (ST) for acute AV fistulae occlusion. Whether post-operative antiplatelet drugs have similar effects on the patency of AV fistula after surgical thrombectomy in patients with end-stage renal(More)
BACKGROUND The variability of visit-to-visit (VVV) in systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) is proved as a predictor of renal function deterioration in patients with non-diabetic chronic kidney disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of the variability in SBP and the magnitude of renal function(More)
