CONCLUSION: Based on the results of this systematic review, transpedal access appears to be a safe and effective technique for complex PAD. PMID: 29207364 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Rationale: A primary goal of therapy for patients with peripheral arterial disease and intermittent claudication (PAD+IC) is increased ambulatory function. Supervised exercise rehabilitation was recently shown to confer superior walking benefits to pharmacological or surgical interventions. Increases in plasma inorganic nitrite, via oral nitrate, have been shown to increase exercise performance in both human and animal models, especially in hypoxic conditions. Objective: To determine whether a 36-session exercise rehabilitation program while consuming oral inorganic nitrate (4.2mmol concentrated beetroot ...

Conclusions: These results suggest that rhythmic auditory stimulation immediately increases total walking distance in patients with claudication due to peripheral artery disease. This technology may provide a tool for clinicians to use when prescribing exercise, improve motivation, and increase adherence to exercise rehabilitation programs.

Iliac artery occlusive disease can present as a sudden-onset acute thrombotic or thromboembolic event or as a chronic progressive atherosclerotic process that presents as claudication progressing to rest pain. Depending on the clinical presentation, the diagnosis is usually confirmed through Doppler vascular ultrasound, CT angiography, or MR angiography; the choice of imaging is usually based on modality availability and the presence of patient comorbidities such as chronic kidney disease. The Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus II classification system is commonly used to describe the extent of the peripheral vascular disease.

Conclusions— DA+DCB treatment was effective and safe, but the study was not powered to show significant differences between the 2 methods of revascularization in 1-year follow-up. An adequately powered randomized trial is warranted. Clinical Trial Registration— Unique Identifier: NCT01366482.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between the presence of clinical symptoms of peripheral artery disease and severe renal artery stenosis in patients referred for renal angiography. METHOD: We included 82 patients with clinical suspicion of renovascular hypertension and performed an imaging investigation (renal Doppler ultrasound and/or renal scintigraphy) for possible renal artery stenosis. All patients underwent renal arteriography and were examined for peripheral artery disease based on the presence of intermittent claudication and ankle-brachial index test results. Severe renal artery...

CONCLUSIONThe 12‐month clinical effectiveness of bare nitinol stents to treat patients with symptomatic femoropopliteal PAD is acceptable and is impacted by clinical and lesion‐specific characteristics. These data provide an important and useful benchmark to compare the clinical benefit of emerging endovascular PAD therapies. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

PurposeOur aim was to evaluate the acute success and complication rates of the transradial and transulnar access for iliac artery stenting using sheathless guiding systems. MethodsClinical and angiographic data from 156 consecutive patients with symptomatic iliac artery stenosis who were treated with transradial or transulnar access were evaluated. All patients underwent Duplex ultrasound before and after the intervention. The primary endpoints were the procedural success rate, major adverse events, and access site complication rates. The secondary endpoints were the angiographic result of the iliac artery intervention, fl...

Publication date: Available online 15 March 2016 Source:Surgery (Oxford) Author(s): James Budge, Benjamin Patterson, Ian Loftus Acute (ALI) and chronic limb ischaemic (CLI) make up a major part of the workload of vascular surgeons and carry considerable morbidity and mortality. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is the major cause of these conditions. Diagnosis of these conditions involves proper use of imaging including duplex ultrasound, computed tomography angiography (CTA), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), as well as invasive techniques like digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Management ranges from conservat...
