The purpose of this study is to report outcomes following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in patients with ectatic common iliac arteries (CIAs). Of 117 AAA patients treated by EVAR between 1998 and 2005, 87 (74%) had CIAs diameters <18 mm and 30 (26%) patients had one or more CIA diameters >18 but <25 mm. All patients(More)
OBJECTIVES The incidence and effect of bare stent struts crossing the renal ostia following endovascular aortic aneurysm repair with the Talent stent-graft is not known. The study aims to establish the incidence in which bare stent struts cross the renal ostia and to assess any associated effects on renal function. METHODS Fifty-five patients (51 men,(More)
PURPOSE To review the midterm results of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with the Talent stent-graft. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients who underwent EVAR of AAAs with Talent stent-grafts from February 1998 to April 2002 at a single institution were monitored for a minimum of 2 years or until an endpoint of death(More)
AIM To assess the incidence of puncture site complications in in-patients undergoing early mobilization following angioplasty with a view to performing day case angioplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty-eight patients undergoing peripheral and renal angioplasty using a sheath size of up to 6 French were recruited prospectively. The(More)
AIM To evaluate prospectively the pattern, severity and predictive factors of pain after interventional radiological procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients undergoing non-arterial radiological interventional procedures were assessed using a visual-analogue scale (VAS) for pain before and at regular intervals for 24 h after their procedure.

AIM To review our practice of outpatient percutaneous vascular interventions facilitated by an arterial suture device. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of all patients attending this tertiary centre for iliac or femoral intervention was undertaken between February 2001 and December 2004. All patients who underwent angioplasty or stenting had(More)
AIM A cross-site vascular radiology on-call service was established 5 years ago to cover two vascular centres in Manchester. We aimed to review the service. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective audit of out-of hours referrals and procedures over a three month period (March-May 2003) was undertaken. RESULTS There were 52 incidents in 49 patients (mean 4(More)
A teenager with palpitations and hypertension was found to have an intrapericardial pheochromocytoma of the left atrium with multiple feeding collaterals. Radiologic embolization was carried out on the major feeding arteries to the tumor preoperatively with good angiographic result. Surgery was carried out the following day through a median sternotomy(More)
OBJECTIVES to determine the inter- and intra-observer variability of ICA stenosis measurement using duplex, ECST and NASCET methods. DESIGN a retrospective review of arch angiograms and carotid duplex scans in 50 patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS carotid stenoses were calculated by three independent observers according to NASCET and ECST methods.(More)
