BACKGROUND Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a life-threatening condition. A number of studies reported the association between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism and AAA risk, but substantial controversial findings were observed and the strength of the association remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
Due to distinct biological behavior of mucinous adenocarcinoma (MAC) and signet ring cell cancer (SRC), the efficacy of radiotherapy on long-term outcome for rectal cancer (RC) patients with mucinous tumors is still unclear. Here, we identified 1808 RC patients with MAC/SRC from Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results (SEER) database from 2004 to 2013.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the mechanism of hydrogen on the intervention of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). METHODS Healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into AAA group and AAA intervention group (saturated hydrogen saline administered intraperitoneally once daily). AAA was induced by infiltration of abdominal aorta with 0.5 mol/L calcium chloride.(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Hyperhomocysteineamia (HHcy) has long been suggested as a risk factor for atherosclerosis. However, the association between HHcy and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is still controversial. There is a lack of research on this topic in the Chinese population. This study aims to provide further results. METHODS 240 PAD patients and 240(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome after endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in single center. METHODS A total of 711 AAA patients treated by EVAR in Department of Vascular Surgery, People's Liberation Army General Hospital and met the inclusion criteria from January 2004 to June 2014 were followed-up and analyzed. There(More)
BACKGROUND Iliac branch stent grafts (IBSGs) have been used for internal iliac artery preservation during aneurysm repair. However, current available branch iliac stent grafts used in Western countries are not suitable for many patients in Asia because of shorter common iliac arteries (CIA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the perioperative outcome between the endovascular repair (EVAR) and open surgical repair (OSR) for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. METHODS From January 2006 to January 2013, totally 66 patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) treated by surgery were retrospectively analyzed in Department of vascular surgery,(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the progress of the robotic applications in vascular surgery. METHODS Recent literature about the robotic applications in vascular surgery was reviewed and analyzed. RESULTS Robotic system is composed of surgery robotic system and endovascular interventional robotic system. The time of aortic clamping and anastomosis is reduced(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the perioperative outcome after endovascular repair (EVAR) of symptomatic abdominal aneurysms (S-AAAs) and elective non-symptomatic AAAs (E-AAAs). METHODS From January 2008 to February 2013, a total of 230 non-ruptured AAA patients treated by EVAR met the inclusion criteria. S-AAAs were present in 43 (18.7%) patients, 40 patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of the endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in patients over 80 years old and analyze the factors that influence its long-term curative effect. METHODS Follow-up visits and analysis were conducted from January 2004 to December 2013 on a total of 96 AAA patients aged over 80 years old who(More)
