An estimated 8–12 million Americans are believed to suffer from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) according to the American Heart Association [1]. The prevalence of PAD has been estimated at almost 10% in the general population and almost 20% in those older than 70 years. Patients with PAD present a unique challenge to the provider due to their typically older age, high rates of underdiagnosis due to asymptomatic state, and the higher prevalence of comorbid conditions. The prototypical risk fact...

Major perioperative cardiac events are estimated to complicate between 1.4% and 3.9% of surgeries. Because most surgeries are elective, there is the opportunity to implement strategies to reduce this risk. Accurate identification of patients at risk for such events will allow patients to be better informed about the benefit-to-risk ratio of procedures, and guide allotment of limited clinical resources, utilization of preventive interventions, and areas of future research. This review focuses on ...

Acute type B aortic dissection comprises approximately one-third of all aortic dissection cases. Although this catastrophic cardiovascular condition was first described in the medical literature over two centuries ago, data on the optimal diagnostic and treatment modalities for type B dissection was slow to evolve throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, even as newer diagnostic techniques and management strategies became commonplace. To further elucidate contemporary practice patter...
