In a longitudinal analysis of all 321 patients in a defined population having surgery for critical leg ischemia during 1 year in Malmöhus county (0.53 million inhabitants), Sweden, we investigated all vascular procedures and amputations on both legs, total hospital stay and hospital costs from the first procedure in each patient until death or at follow-up(More)
OBJECTIVES To study contemporary treatment and outcome of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair in nine countries. DESIGN AND METHODS Data on primary AAA repairs 2005-2009 were amalgamated from national and regional vascular registries in Australia, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Primary outcome was in-hospital(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the incidence and clinical presentation of intestinal ischaemia after aortoiliac/femoral surgery, and to validate a vascular registry concerning a serious complication. DESIGN AND SETTING In the Swedish Vascular Registry (SWEDVASC) the outcome and complications of all vascular procedures are registered prospectively. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND The outcome and prognostic factors after revascularization of acute thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) are poorly documented. METHODS Sixty patients with acute thromboembolic occlusion of the SMA had revascularization procedures at 21 hospitals from 1987 to 1998. They were registered prospectively in the Swedish(More)
OBJECTIVES The overall benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is dependent on the outcome from the procedure. However, many reports are from selected centres and not population-based. The aim of this study was to assess the 30-day complication rate for a whole country and also to determine independent risk factors for serious complications. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify risk factors for intestinal ischaemia after aortoiliac surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among 2824 patients operated on during 1987-93 and registered prospectively in the Swedish Vascular Registry, 62 cases of postoperative intestinal ischaemia were identified. They were compared with the remaining 2762 patients through the registry(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE to determine if diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for outcome after carotid endarterectomy (CEA). METHODS the outcome and complications of all vascular procedures performed in Sweden are registered prospectively in the Swedish Vascular Registry (Swedvasc) and form the basis of this report. During the 10-year period 1987-96 2622(More)
AIM To analyze time trends in invasive treatment of renovascular disease in one country. METHODS Data have been analyzed from registrations in the Swedish Vascular Registry. RESULTS Invasive treatment for renovascular disease contributes around 1% of all vascular surgery within the Swedish Vascular Registry. Over the twenty-year period 1987-2006 the(More)
To test the feasibility of using a system for classification of surgical errors and of in-hospital deaths and long hospital stay as markers for errors in surgery we reviewed the hospital records of 273 patients with 285 admissions. During the one year study period there were in all 3767 patients admitted for surgical care. From these we selected the 131 who(More)
Clinical decisions often entail in intertemporal trade-off. Moreover, they often involve physicians of different specialities. In an experiment dealing with the management of small asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysms (a clinically relevant problem) we find that specialists in internal medicine exhibit higher implicit discount rates than vascular(More)
