BackgroundEvolocumab is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin–kexin type 9 (PCSK9) and lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels by approximately 60%. Whether it prevents cardiovascular events is uncertain. MethodsWe conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 27,564 patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and LDL cholesterol levels of 70 mg per deciliter (1.8 mmol per liter) or higher who were receiving stati...

Objective/Background The objective was to determine the prevalence and clinical determinants of renal artery stenosis (RAS) in patients undergoing digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for the assessment of peripheral artery disease (PAD), and to evaluate its prognostic significance. Methods All DSAs performed from January 2000 to January 2006 were retrospectively reviewed for assessment of PAD in patients naive for any prior revascularisation of lower-limb arteries. All DSA studies were read by...

Objectives The aim was to determine 30-day outcomes in patients with concurrent carotid and cardiac disease who underwent carotid artery stenting (CAS) followed by coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Methods This was a systematic review with searches of PubMed/Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases. "Same-day" procedures involved CAS + CABG being performed on the same day, and "staged" interventions involved at least 1 day's delay between undergoing CAS and then CABG. Results There were 31 ...

BackgroundPeripheral artery disease is considered to be a manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis with associated adverse cardiovascular and limb events. Data from previous trials have suggested that patients receiving clopidogrel monotherapy had a lower risk of cardiovascular events than those receiving aspirin. We wanted to compare clopidogrel with ticagrelor, a potent antiplatelet agent, in patients with peripheral artery disease. MethodsIn this double-blind, event-driven trial, we randomly...

Background Severe limb ischaemia is defined by ischaemic rest/night pain, tissue loss, or both, secondary to arterial insufficiency and is increasingly caused by infra-popliteal (below the knee) disease, mainly as a result of the increasing worldwide prevalence of diabetes. Currently, it is unknown whether vein bypass surgery or the best endovascular treatment (angioplasty or stenting) represents the optimal revascularisation strategy in terms of amputation-free survival, overall survival, relie...

Objective Long or multisegmental external iliac-to-femoral arterial lesions treated by angioplasty and stenting have achieved disappointing results. Conventional, open approaches are often complicated by significant morbidity, and endovascular stenting alone typically requires additional outflow procedures. We hypothesized that a hybrid approach, combining endovascular techniques with remote selective external iliac endarterectomy, produces superior outcomes in terms of patency compared with ste...

Background and Purpose— Guidelines recommend that carotid endarterectomy should be performed within 2 weeks in patients with a symptomatic carotid stenosis. Because a Swedish register study indicated that patients treated within the first days after a stroke or transient ischemic attack might have an increased perioperative stroke and mortality risk, this study aimed to find out whether these findings are also true under everyday conditions in Germany. Methods— Secondary data analysis including ...

Abstract: Objective The endovascular approach has been widely used for aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD), especially for aortic bifurcation and iliac artery Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus-II (TASC-II) A and B lesions. However, the outcomes of self-expanding covered stents (SECSs) for extensive aortoiliac lesion remain unclear. This study aimed to assess the short-term patency of kissing covered stents for the revascularization of aortoiliac TASC-II C and D diseases. Materials and Metho...

OBJECTIVES: Lower extremity peripheral artery disease develops mainly due to atherosclerosis and occurs as a result of the systemic atherosclerotic process. Increased triglyceride (TG) and decreased high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) values increase atherosclerosis risk. With regard to this information, TG/HDL-C ratio is used as the atherogenic index. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of TG/HDL-C ratio to predict the complexity of disease in patients with peripheral...

Summary Background Antiplatelet therapy is recommended among patients with established atherosclerosis. We compared monotherapy with a P2Y12 inhibitor versus aspirin for secondary prevention. Methods In this systematic review and meta-analysis, all randomised trials comparing P2Y12 inhibitor with aspirin monotherapy for secondary prevention in patients with cerebrovascular, coronary, or peripheral artery disease were evaluated for inclusion. On Dec 18, 2019, we searched PubMed, Embase, BioMedCen...

Background Statins are guidelines recommended in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) for the prevention of cardiovascular (CV) events. Comprehensive meta-data on the impact of statins on major adverse limb events (MALE) in PAD patients are lacking. We examined the association of statin use with MALE in patients with PAD. Methods We performed a systematic review (registered at PROSPERO: number CRD42019137111) and metanalysis of studies retrieved from PubMed (via MEDLINE) and Cochrane (C...

In patients with exertional limb symptoms and normal ankle-brachial index (ABI) at rest, exercise testing can be used to diagnose lower extremity arterial disease (LEAD). Post-exercise ABI decrease or Exercise transcutaneous oxygen pressure measurement (Exercise-TcPO2) can be used to diagnose LEAD. Objectives were (i) to assess the agreement between both methods (ii) to define the variables associated with the discordance, and (iii) to present results of healthy subjects. In this prospective cro...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological, imaging, and anatomical studies suggest an association between proximal arterial atherosclerosis and development of low back pain (LBP). OBJECTIVES: We aimed to define (1) the frequency and (2) factors associated with exercise-induced proximal ischemia (EIPI) in individuals with LBP and (3) develop a clinical screening scale. DESIGN: Monocentric cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: All patients with history of ongoing LBP referred to our exercise investigation labora...

Purpose: To investigate contemporary results of percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA).Materials and Methods: A multicentre retrospective study analysing all patients treated with PTRA for primary symptomatic renal artery stenosis (RAS) between 2010 and 2013 at four tertiary centres. Procedures during the preceding four years were counted to evaluate for change in PTRA frequency.Results: The number of PTRA procedures decreased by approximately 50% from 2006 to 2013. Patients treated ...
