Percutaneous transfemoral insertion of a stented graft to repair a traumatic femoral arteriovenous fistula.
This case report describes a new approach to repair a femoral arteriovenous fistula with a transluminally placed intraarterial graft-covered stent. A balloon-expandable stentedExpand

Transluminally placed endovascular stented graft repair for arterial trauma.
PURPOSE Intravascular stents have become important tools for the management of vascular lesions; however, stents in combination with vascular grafts have only recently reached clinical application.Expand

Repair of type IV thoracoabdominal aneurysm with a combined endovascular and surgical approach.
We report an unusual case of type IV Thoracoabdominal Aneurysm (TAA) with Superior Mesenteric Artery (SMA), celiac artery, and bilateral renal artery aneurysms in a patient who underwent an earlierExpand

Transfemoral endoluminal stented graft repair of a popliteal artery aneurysm.
This report describes the use of an endoluminally placed stented graft to repair a large (2.6 by 2.6 by 15 cm) popliteal aneurysm in a 63-year-old man with advanced heart disease. TwoExpand

A twelve-year experience with the popliteal-to-distal artery bypass: the significance and management of proximal disease.
The value of the popliteal-to-distal artery bypass in limb salvage is well documented. However, the influence of progression of disease in the superficial femoral artery or proximal popliteal artery,Expand

Is percutaneous balloon angioplasty appropriate in the treatment of graft and anastomotic lesions responsible for failing vein bypasses?
We reviewed 95 cases of vein graft and anastomotic lesions treated with percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty (PTA) and 30 cases treated surgically. The therapy was deemed a failure if theExpand

A ten-year experience with one hundred fifty failing or threatened vein and polytetrafluoroethylene arterial bypass grafts.
Between Jan. 1, 1980, and Dec. 31, 1989, 2187 infrainguinal revascularization procedures were performed. In 130 of these cases with patent bypasses, hemodynamic deterioration was suspected, andExpand

Accuracy of intravascular ultrasound for diameter measurement of phantom arteries.
BACKGROUND Uniplanar quantitative angiography (QA) is the standard method for measuring vessel diameter during surgical and endovascular procedures. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), a relatively newExpand

Unsuspected preexisting saphenous vein disease: an unrecognized cause of vein bypass failure.
Our prior anecdotal experience with unsuspected preexisting saphenous vein disease prompted us to study its incidence, its relation to graft failure, and to identify techniques for its detection.Expand

Saphenous vein biopsy: a predictor of vein graft failure.
PURPOSE To determine why some vein grafts fail, we prospectively studied the relationship between the histologic condition of the greater saphenous vein (GSV) at the time of grafting and subsequentExpand
