During carotid endarterectomy (CEA) the internal carotid artery is cross-clamped for a period of several minutes. This maneuver may cause cerebral hypoperfusion and/or impairment of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) even in cases where clinical signs are absent. The aim of the present study was to examine whether such alterations could be detected by monitoring(More)
After limited experience with eversion endarterectomy of the internal carotid artery, comparison has been made between perioperative results obtained with the eversion technique and with the conventional method. The perioperative results of 715 consecutive cases of patch plasty of the internal carotid artery performed between January 1986 and December 1990(More)
OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN The purpose of the study was to investigate the putative role of soluble thrombomodulin (sTM) in severe carotid artery stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We prospectively studied 64 patients who were undergoing carotid endarterectomy (2001-2003). Plasma sTM concentration was determined in each patient before surgery and at 14 months(More)
The acute arterial thrombosis of the lower limb is dangerous not only for the limb, but it can cause life-threatening situation as well. That is why it is important to use different therapeutical modalities as the catheter guided intraarterial thrombolysis, which can reduce the surgical risks. All the drugs used for lysis now days are plasminogen(More)
Between 1990-2000 163 coronary + carotid procedures were performed. The mean age was 4 years higher than it was at patients underwent isolated CABG (63.4 y vs 59.8 y). Clinically proven obliterative artery diseases in other anatomical regions were also present in more than 60% of patients. The half of the procedures were performed under emergency and urgent(More)
Venous (pseudo)aneurysms are rare entities. Herewith we report a case of the right lower extremity in a 42-year-old woman in whom a non-pulsatile mass was diagnosed only by physical examination as a hematoma and was treated conservatively. Six months later ultrasound and phlebography identified a pseudoaneurysm of the great saphenous vein. Post-traumatic(More)
The authors present a case of moyamoya disease associated with subclavian steal syndrome. They could not find any report in literature about the combination of these syndromes. The Doppler, MR, and angiographic findings as well as the clinical importance of subclavian steal and moyamoya syndromes are briefly summarized.
OBJECTIVE Although the association between vulnerable lesions and cardiovascular events is well established, little is known about their relationship to postsurgery restenosis. To address this issue, we initiated a prospective, nonrandomized study to examine the femoral plaques on both sides in patients who were undergoing eversion carotid endarterectomy(More)
