Cardiac involvement in systemic amyloidosis (AL) occurs in ~50% of all AL patients. However once symptomatic heart failure develops, therapeutic options are limited thereby conferring a poor overall prognosis. The median survival is <6 months when AL patients are untreated for the underlying plasma cell dyscrasia. We thus sought to identify risk factors of increased mortality in treatment-naive, AL cardiac amyloidosis with heart failure. Patients with biopsy-proven AL cardiac amyloid, who presen...

Abstract Background Coronary stenting without angioplasty pretreatment (direct stenting) may simplify procedures in appropriate lesions. Direct stenting is facilitated by smaller profile coronary stent platforms. The present study was designed for regulatory approval of a novel drug-eluting coronary stent and incorporates both randomized comparison for non-inferiority to an approved predicate device as well as a nested evaluation of subjects eligible for direct stenting. Study Design and Objecti...

Objective The choice for surgical revascularisation for aortoiliac occlusive disease is often tempered by patient comorbidities. This study compares peri-operative outcomes and the association between choice of operation and one year major adverse limb event (MALE) free survival and five year mortality. Methods The Vascular Study Group of New England (VSGNE) dataset for supra-inguinal bypass operations from 2009 to 2015 was queried. This study excluded cases with bypass other than aortofemoral (...

Abstract Objective Although the effect of body mass index (BMI) on the treatment of infrainguinal peripheral artery disease has been reported, outcomes of patients on the upper end of the obesity spectrum, including morbid obesity (MO) and superobesity (SO), are unclear. Our goal was to analyze perioperative outcomes after lower extremity bypass (LEB) and peripheral vascular interventions (PVIs) in this population of patients. Methods The Vascular Quality Initiative was reviewed for all infraing...
