Abstract Objectives Examine the role of imaging and characterize pancreatitis complicating abdominal aortic repair. Materials and methods The radiology information system queried reports for terms pancreatitis, fluid collection, peripancreatic fluid, and aortic/aneurysm/endovascular/open repair from January 2010 through May 2018 and yielded 243 unique patients. Aortic repair and pancreatitis did not occur in temporal proximity (within 30 days) in 227 patients and three patients had invalid medic...

With advances in modern day imaging techniques for the aorta, there has been an increasing incidence of vascular diseases involving the aortic arch. Historically, the only treatment option for arch disease has been open arch replacement under circulatory arrest conditions with or without selective cerebral perfusion. However, this open procedure has significant morbidity and mortality, especially in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities. To potentially mitigate the risks associated with o...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the Cook Zenith p-Branch stent graft (William A. Cook Australia, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) for the treatment of patients with asymptomatic juxtarenal or pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysms in a prospective, nonrandomized, multicenter, feasibility study conducted in the United States. Methods The off-the-shelf p-Branch endograft incorporates a celiac scallop, superior mesenteric artery (SMA) fenestration, and two conical-shaped pivot renal fenestrations. Pat...

Abstract Background and aims Diabetes is an independent risk factor for carotid artery stenosis (CAS). Fatty acid synthase (FAS), an essential de novo lipogenesis enzyme, has increased activity in the setting of diabetes that leads to altered lipid metabolism. Circulating FAS (cFAS) was recently observed in the blood of patients with hyperinsulinemia and cancer. We thought to evaluate the origin of cFAS and its role in diabetes-associated CAS. Methods Patients with diabetes and no diabetes, unde...

Background Postoperative subtherapeutic low-dose heparin infusion (LDHI) is sometimes administered in patients undergoing extremity arterial revascularization to maintain graft patency and decrease the risk of thrombosis. However, the safety of this management strategy is unknown. Methods From 2013 to 2015, we retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing upper and lower extremity arterial revascularization at a single university–affiliated medical center. Patients were grouped by receipt of ...

Abstract Background A large proportion of patients develop poor amputation stump healing. We hypothesize that L aser- A ssisted F luorescent A ngiography (LAFA) can predict inadequate tissue perfusion and healing. Methods Over an 8-month period we reviewed all patients who underwent lower extremity amputation and LAFA. We evaluated intra-operative LAFA global and segmental stump perfusion, and post-operative modified Bates-Jensen (mBJS) wound healing scores. Results In 15 patients, amputation st...
