Background Mortality rates for patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and cardiogenic shock (CS) remain high despite advances in revascularization strategies and mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices.
Objectives: We sought to assess whether balloon angioplasty (BA) alone for small femoropopliteal disease improved the outcome following endovascular therapy as compared with stent implantation.
Objective: We conducted a meta‐analysis to compare the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) with carbon dioxide (CO2) versus iodinated contrast media (ICM).
Objectives: We designed a nationwide cohort study to elucidate the impact of hospital volume on the incidence of stroke after CAS.
The factors that impact the clinical effectiveness of bare nitinol stents in claudicants with symptomatic femoropopliteal atherosclerosis are incompletely known. The authors analyzed variables that may influence stent durability and provide a benchmark for their effectiveness. Data analyzed from six studies (999 patients) included baseline noninvasive hemodynamic tests, angiographic characteristics, ultrasound defined stent patency and target lesion revascularization through 12‐months. Baseline ankle‐brachial index and lesion length predicted stent patency and target lesion revascularization and when combined interacted significantly to better predict outcomes. This meta‐analysis provides an important comparator against which emerging therapies that treat claudicants with femoropopliteal atherosclerosis can be assessed.
Importance: Long‐term outcomes of an interwoven nitinol stent design represent the best in class for treatment of lower limb arterial obstructive disease.
Background: Minimally invasive percutaneous transluminal renal artery stenting (MIPTRS) is a method that prevents complications to the greatest extent possible. The present study aimed to investigate the safety and efficacy of MIPTRS performed in cases of renal artery stenosis with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≤ 45 mL/min.
Background: There is little data on indication, vascular beds treated and devices utilized for peripheral arterial interventions.
Background: Currently, limited data are available on the optimal treatment strategy for AngiosealTM related acute lower limb ischemia.
Introduction: Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is typically performed using embolic protection devices (EPDs) as a means to reduce the risk of procedure related stroke. In this study, we compared procedural morbidity and mortality associated with distal (D-EPD) vs. proximal (P-EPD) protection.
Objectives: The SuperNOVA trial was designed to evaluate performance of the Innova Vascular Self-Expanding Stent System (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA) for treating lesions in the femoropopliteal arteries.
Purpose: To assess the intraprocedural and midterm outcomes of orbital atherectomy (OA) combined with drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty for the treatment of calcified femoropopliteal disease.
Objectives: This study aimed to compare the association of access site complications and the use of unfractionated heparin versus bivalirudin during subinguinal peripheral vascular intervention.
Background: The ability of a simple self-assessment tool for estimated functional capacity to predict long-term prognosis in patients with established peripheral artery disease (PAD) is unknown. We investigate whether subjective measurement of functional capacity estimated by using the Duke Activity Status Index (DASI) questionnaire predicts long-term prognosis in patients with established PAD.
