Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Growth Predicted by Uptake of Ultrasmall Superparamagnetic Particles of Iron Oxide: A Pilot Study
Background— Abdominal aortic aneurysms are a major cause of death. Prediction of aneurysm expansion and rupture is challenging and currently relies on the simple measure of aneurysm diameter. UsingExpand

The management of the infected aortic prosthesis: a current decade of experience.
PURPOSE Newer approaches to the patient with an infected aortic graft are available. We reviewed a recent 10-year experience with a more traditional approach to evaluate its outcome in the 1990s. Expand

Predictors of Outcome After Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Rupture: Edinburgh Ruptured Aneurysm Score
BackgroundMany surgeons adopt a selective policy of intervention for a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). This study aimed to develop an objective method of identifying patients suitable forExpand

Contemporary results for open repair of suprarenal and type IV thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms
Endovascular and hybrid procedures are not yet widely established in the management of type IV thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA). Open surgery remains the treatment of choice until theExpand

Influence of sex on expansion rate of abdominal aortic aneurysms
The UK Small Aneurysm Trial suggested that female sex is an independent risk factor for rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). This study assessed the effect of sex on the growth rate of AAA.

Plasma creatine kinase indicates major amputation or limb preservation in acute lower limb ischemia.
OBJECTIVE Acutely ischemic limbs are often of uncertain viability. To assist operative management, this study determined prospectively which indicators on admission were the best predictors of majorExpand

Outcome and Survival of Patients Aged 65 Years and Younger after Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Rupture
Advanced age (> 80 years) confers a survival disadvantage after operative repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). This study aimed to determine if young age (≤65 years) confers aExpand

Ruptured inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm: insights in clinical management and outcome.
BACKGROUND Ruptured inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is relatively rare, and little has been written on the outcome of operative treatment. METHODS Patients undergoing attempted repairExpand

Regional versus general anaesthesia for carotid endarterectomy: impact of change in practice.
BACKGROUND Local anaesthesia (LA) for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) may offer advantages over general anaesthesia (GA). AIM Our aim was to compare outcome from CEA before and after changing ourExpand

Cardiac troponin I predicts outcome after ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a highly sensitive and specific marker for myocardial injury that predicts mortality in patients with acute coronary syndromes. This study examined the relationshipExpand
