Guidewire perforation and compartment syndrome after lower extremity angioplasty.

Guidewire perforation and compartment syndrome after lower extremity angioplasty. Vasa. 2019 Aug 15;:1-5 Authors: Ganesan K, Tan JSH, Kumar P Abstract Chronic total occlusion remains one of the most challenging lesions to treat despite continuing developments in medical devices and increasing operator experience. Guidewire perforation complications are being increasingly observed. Early recognition and timely institution of appropriate treatment are essential to prevent potentially devastating sequelae.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to explore the safety and efficacy of bivalirudin in elderly patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).MethodsAn electronic search was conducted for randomized controlled trials with outcomes of interest in the elderly ( ≥ 65 years of age). Pooled risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) using random effects Der Simonian–Laird models were calculated. Primary outcomes were net adverse clinical events (NACE) and major bleeding events at 30 days. Secondary outcomes were major adverse cardiac events (MA CE) at 30 days. MACE, all...

Conclusion: Videoscopic surgery for AVF dramatically reduced the incidence of postoperative complications without interrupting patency; moreover, such procedures may increase the use of native vessels for vascular access. In addition, dissection using a videoscope compared to blind dissection using only a skip incision dramatically increased the success rate of displacement by reducing damage to the dissected vessels.

Authors: Denis Le Seve J, Gourraud Vercel C, Connault J, Artifoni M Abstract Cholesterol crystal embolism is a systemic pathology associated with diffuse atherosclerosis. Pathophysiology corresponds to tissue necro-inflammation secondary to arteriolar occlusion associated with microembolism from atherosclerotic plaques of large diameter arteries. The clinical presentation is heterogeneous and polymorphic. Multiple organs may be the targets, but preferential damage is skin, kidneys and digestive system. It is a serious pathology, underdiagnosed, with a poor prognosis. The risk factors for developing the disease rema...

Authors: De Vecchis R, Paccone A, Di Maio M Abstract BACKGROUND: The MacNew questionnaire in its original version is a diagnostic tool which consists of a number of questions answered on a seven-point scale. Among the multiple possible choices, each marked by a box, the examined patient will have to tick only one. In fact, more than one answer for each proposed question is not allowed, for the formulation of the final score. Global and subscale( physical, social and emotional subscales) scores are computed by dividing the sum of the scores achieved for each individual item by the number of items listed in the quest...

ConclusionsOur findings suggest that the outcomes of mortality or new Q-wave MI and BARC 3 or 5 bleeding favor radial access in patients with a high, but not those with a low, risk of bleeding. Since this was not a primary analysis, it should be considered hypothesis-generating.
