Complex endovascular treatment of intact aortic aneurysms

BackgroundThe complex endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms and dissections with fenestrated or branched stent grafts (FB-EVAR) remains challenging for interventional vascular surgery. To date, the evidence regarding treatment patterns and outcome measures consists of single center studies; however, it might be reasonable to validate results with multicenter real-world evidence...

Visceral artery aneurysms

Visceral artery aneurysms are rare with an incidence of only 0.01–0.1% of the population. Open surgical or endovascular elimination should be performed for aneurysms greater than 2 cm in size. The risk of aneurysm rupture is then approximately 25–40%. If the aneurysm ruptures the mortality can be as high as 76%. For mycotic aneurysms or spurious aneurysms there is no lower limit...

Heparininduzierte Thrombozytopenie

Major cardiovascular surgery has the highest risk for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), which is associated with a high risk for new thromboembolic complications. Typical clinical symptoms are summarized in the 4Ts score, i. e., platelet count decrease >50% (report on the last available platelet counts when patient are referred), onset between days 5 and 10, new thrombotic...

Noninvasive measurements of tissue perfusion in critical limb ischemia

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) remains a challenge for an interdisciplinary therapeutic team due to chronic nonhealing wounds. Against this background, there is a necessity of quality control after revascularization. Beside the isolated evaluation of the macrocirculation by Ankle-Brachial or Toe-Brachial Index measurements, the microcirculation as an additional important factor of...

Comparison of long-term results of carotid endarterectomy for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis

This article summarizes the current study situation on treatment of asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis and discusses the evidence situation in the literature. The 10-year results of the ACST study have shown that in comparison to conservative treatment, carotid endarterectomy (CEA) has retained a positive long-term effect on the reduction of all forms of stroke. All multicenter...

Statistische Modelle in der Gefäßchirurgie

Hintergrund Die statistische Modellwahl mit dazugehörender Analysestrategie bestimmt in einem Forschungsprojekt dessen quantitatives Ergebnis. Es existiert in der Regel kein Goldstandard zur Wahl der relevanten Modellierungsstrategie. Der Statistiker kann in Abstimmung mit den weiteren Teammitgliedern im Projekt zwischen einer Vielzahl alternativer Modelle wählen. Folglich kämen...
