Abstract Objective Universal risk calculators may underestimate mortality risk, whereas purely observational administrative data may lack appropriate granularity to individualize risk. The purpose of this study was to create a simple risk prediction model to identify the factors associated with 30-day morality after lower extremity major amputation for ischemic vascular disease. Methods The Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Program national data set was queried from 2005 to 2015 to i...

BackgroundPortal vein aneurysms are rare dilations in the portal venous system, for which the etiology and pathophysiological consequences are poorly understood.MethodWe reviewed the existing literature as well as present a unique anecdotal case of a patient presenting with a very large portal vein aneurysm that was successfully managed conservatively and non-operatively without anticoagulation, with close follow-up and routine surveillance.ResultThe rising prevalence of abdominal imaging in cli...

Abstract Objective Multiple vascular inflow reconstruction options exist for claudication, including aortofemoral bypass (AFB) and alternative inflow procedures (AIPs) such as femoral reconstruction with iliac stents, and femoral-femoral, iliofemoral, and axillofemoral bypass. Contemporary multi-institution comparison of these techniques is lacking. Methods The Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Project (VASQIP) national database (2005-2013) was used to compare AFB vs AIP in a propens...

Abstract Background We compared the early postoperative morbidity and mortality rates of contemporary aortofemoral bypass (AFB) and other inflow procedures for claudication. Methods We identified 1974 claudicants who underwent elective AFB ( n = 566) or non-AFB (nonaortofemoral bypass [NAFB]; n = 1408) inflow reconstruction using the ACS-NSQIP database (2005 to 2012). Stent placement was not routinely captured. In propensity score–matched cohorts, we analyzed the association between type of infl...

Objective National data evaluating outcomes for occlusive abdominal aortic reconstructions are well described. The relative effect of operative indication as well as the presence of concomitant abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) on in-hospital mortality is not well defined. Methods The Nationwide Inpatient Sample was queried to identify patients who underwent open aortic surgery (2003-2010). Indication for surgery was classified by International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision diagnostic...

This study aimed to compare expectations and experiences of fellows to those of faculty in vascular surgery fellowship programs with regard to endovascular training. Anonymous surveys were sent to fellows (n = 235) and program directors (n = 147), with 79 fellows and 65 faculty members responding. Fellows noted higher expectations of their endovascular skills prior to starting fellowship than the faculty group reported expecting. Faculty assessed fellows' pre-training endovascular skills at a si...

IntroductionIn this study, we evaluated if increase in utilization of endovascular surgery has affected in-hospital mortality rates among patients with acute mesenteric ischemia.MethodsThe National Inpatient Sample (2003–2011) was queried for acute mesenteric ischemia using ICD-9 code for acute mesenteric ischemia (557.1). This cohort was divided into patients treated with open vascular surgery (open vascular group) and by endovascular therapies (endovascular group) based on the ICD-9CM procedur...

Objective Open surgical reconstruction for supra-aortic trunk occlusive disease persists despite advances in endovascular therapy. Although extrathoracic reconstructions developed as a safer alternative to transthoracic reconstructions, contemporary national data evaluating relative rates of operative outcomes are lacking. Methods With use of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (2005-2011), patients who underwent transthoracic or extrathoracic reconstruction were evaluated. Patient...
