Objective This study aimed to evaluate the protocol adopted during the emergency phase of the COVID-19 pandemic to maintain elective activity in a vascular surgery unit while minimising the risk of contamination to both patients and physicians, and the impact of this activity on the intensive care (IC) resources. Methods The activity of a vascular surgery unit was analysed from 8 March to 8 April 2020. Surgical activity was maintained only for acute or elective procedures obeying priority criter...

Objective The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (AKT) signalling pathway plays a pivotal role in abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). However, systemic inhibition of this pathway causes serious side effects, thus limiting the clinical use of pan-PI3K inhibitors. In this study, it was hypothesised that the γ subunit of PI3K plays an important role in the PI3K/AKT signalling pathway during AAA, and that specifically targeting PI3Kγ may prevent this process. Methods Aortic specime...

Objective Frailty is a multidimensional vulnerability due to age associated decline. The impact of frailty on long term outcomes was assessed in a cohort of vascular surgical patients. Methods Patients aged over 65 years with a length of stay greater than two days admitted to a tertiary vascular unit over a single calendar year were included. Demographics, mode of admission, and diagnosis were recorded alongside a variety of frailty specific characteristics. Using the previously developed Addenb...

Objective The aim was to understand why two recently published guidelines for the diagnosis and management of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) 2020 guidelines and the European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) 2019 guidelines, have discordant recommendations in several important areas. Methods A review of the approach, methodology, and evidence used by the two guideline committees was carried out to understand potential reaso...
