Industry Compensation To Physician Vascular Specialist Authors Of Highly Cited Aortic Aneurysm Manuscripts
Industry compensation may influence physician attitudes toward medical devices and products. Disclosure of industry compensation by authors of manuscripts is often left up to authors themselves and is not routinely audited. The purpose of this analysis was to characterize industry compensation among highly cited research studies related to AA.

To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of single ProGlide use per bilateral access site for Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA).
The chimney technique (ChEVAR) allows for proximal landing zone extension for endovascular repair of complex aortic aneurysms. The aim of the present study was to assess ChEVAR national outcomes in French university hospital centres.
The uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 is making it difficult for public companies to accurately forecast 2020 earnings. Irvine, CA-based Endologix recently joined a growing list of medical device companies that have withdrawn previously-reported financial guidance for the year. The company makes endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once an AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. Endologix said AAA p...
Patients who undergo endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) often require reintervention after the index repair. The long-term rate of reintervention and how this has changed with newer device technology are poorly understood. Therefore, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the available literature to determine long-term freedom from reintervention after EVAR and the change in reintervention rates over time.
We present the perioperative and follow-up outcomes and discuss the rate of complications.
The few randomized trials comparing endovascular with open surgical repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) were poorly designed and heavily criticized. The short-term and midterm survival advantages of endovascular repair remain unclear. We sought to compare the two treatment modalities using a propensity-matched analysis in a real-world setting.
AbstractPurposeWe investigated the etiology and impact on outcomes of polycystic kidney disease in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.MethodsEight-hundred patients who underwent open (n = 603) or endovascular aortic repair (n = 197) were divided into three groups: no cyst (n = 204), non-polycystic kidney (n = 503), and polycystic kidney (≥ 5 cysts in the bilateral kidneys,n = 93). The characteristics and outcomes were compared among the groups.ResultsIn the polycystic kidney group, the age was increased and the proportions of patients with...

Conclusion: Results of this study could be used to facilitate radial force control and longitudinal flexibility enhancement in the design of aortic stent-grafts. PMID: 32233714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
