ConclusionsHospitalization for HRF is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Our observation that home oxygen use was associated with increased mortality suggests that oxygen use could be a risk factor for death in patients with HRF.

CONCLUSION: Thus, diabetes mellitus itself was not an independent factor associated with IAD. A larger IAD was preferentially associated with the presence of PAD, and this association was modified by age. PMID: 31813900 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThere was no significant difference in the outcomes among all groups, and therefore, it shows no reason to routinely measure ACT to guide sheath removal in heparinised patients undergoing endovascular intervention for PVD.

CONCLUSION: Patients are at a high risk of EMS-ED after dialysis initiation. Frailty severity (at the time of dialysis initiation) is a strong predictor of first and recurrent EMS-ED and this may be important to guide informed decision making and resource planning for dialysis patients who require EMS.

CONCLUSION: Antiplatelet monotherapy has minimal clinical benefit for asymptomatic peripheral artery disease, and limited benefit for symptomatic disease, with a clear risk of major bleeding. There is a lack of evidence to guide antiplatelet prescribing after peripheral endovascular intervention. PMID: 31808552 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractBackgroundYoung patients with coronary artery disease are undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) primarily, with a view to deferring coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We investigated the validity of this approach, by comparing outcomes in patients ≤50 years undergoing CABG or PCI.MethodsOne hundred consecutive patients undergoing PCI and 100 undergoing CABG in 2004 were retrospectively studied to allow for 5 and 12 years follow ‐up. The two groups were compared for the primary endpoints of major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular event (MACCE).ResultsDiabetes, peripheral vascular disease, an...

CONCLUSION: Cardiac and extra-cardiac pathologies should be kept in mind in patients with acute arterial occlusion. Thus, detected pathologies could be treated, and the development of additional peripheral emboli could be prevented.RESUMO OBJETIVO: O objetivo do estudo é investigar patologias cardíacas e extracardíacas em pacientes operados por oclusão arterial aguda. MÉTODOS: Entre março de 2010 e março de 2018, um total de 120 pacientes submetidos a tratamento cirúrgico para oclusão arterial aguda foram incluídos neste estudo retrospectivo. RESULTADO S...

Introduction - Reliable perioperative/ -interventional evaluation is often limited by wounds, medial calcinosis or altered collateral supply of the foot. Especially, objective combined visual and quantitative assessment might be helpful for intra- and perioperative quality control. Aim of the study was to investigate Indocyanine green fluorescent imaging (ICG-FI) combined with a new tool for quantitative assessment to evaluate tissue perfusion of the foot before and after peripheral bypass grafting.
