Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society Presidential Address Steamboat Springs, Colorado February 1, 2020 “How Reptiles, the SR-71, 9/11, and Bill Murray Make US Better Surgeons” by, James H. Black, III, MD
Leading the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Society (VESS) has been a great honor. Our society represents many things to many people, for me its friendship, support, knowledge, and growth. While Presidential addresses are a new thing for me, but don ’t be surprised, I may veer back to aortic surgery once or twice. Maybe just maybe, I will have other opportunities to address my colleagues en-masse, but since this may be my last shot at this, I really thought hard what I could say. I worried about being to tangential, or not having enough quips to keep people interested, or just not having anything worth saying. (Sou...

Outpatient surgery is less  cost-effective than conventional hospitalization for the endovascular treatment of peripheral occlusive arterial lesions: results of the AMBUVASC randomized study
The cost-effectiveness of ambulatory hospitalization (AH) for the endovascular treatment of peripheral occlusive arterial disease (POAD) is not established. AMBUVASC was a randomized study comparing the cost-effectiveness of AH with conventional hospitalization (CH) for the endovascular management of POAD with a societal perspective.

Plasmatic osteopontin is a predictive marker of stenosis in patients with a hemodialysis arteriovenous fistula
In spite of the guidelines for an improvement, the follow up of vascular accesses remains insufficient, due to the costs and the burden for the patients. The rate of thrombosis of vascular access reaches 10% per annum. We assumed that the plasmatic level of osteopontin (OPN), a pro-inflammatory molecule correlated with intimal hyperplasia, could be a predictive marker of stenosis in hemodialysis patients with an arteriovenous fistula (AVF), which could allow the detection of the AVFs at risk of thrombosis by a biological test.

Artificial intelligence to detect the patients eligible to vascular surgery
In the Hainaut-Cambr ésis region, a medical desert, a comparatively high death rate related to cardiovascular diseases in patients less than 65 years was observed, with an increase of 78% in women and 60% in men, compared to the whole Metropolitan France. An automatic computerized processing of medical data using artif icial intelligence could contribute to an early identification of the patients with vascular risk and to propose adapted screening and management programs.

Anatomical evolution of residual type B aortic dissections and associated prognostic factors: One year results of the prospective follow-up in an expert center
The risk of reintervention after a type A aortic dissection, directly related to the evolution of the type B residual dissection (TBD), is estimated between 10 and 25%. The follow-up of these patients is difficult, with a significant number of lost to follow up in observational studies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the one-year rates of aneurysmal evolution and reintervention on the distal aorta and the associated criteria of poor prognosis in patients presenting a residual TBD.

The aggression of the endothelium could be responsible for the visceral lesions observed after clamping of the coeliac aorta
Complex aortic surgeries may be complicated by various visceral lesions. Our assumption was that these damages could be in relation with visceral ischemia/reperfusion caused by the operation. Glycocalyx, a component of the endothelial membrane, is implied in severe pathological situations. The aim of our work was to explore the glycocalyx pathway as a causal link between visceral ischemia/reperfusion related to aortic clamping and the damages of remote organs.

Type 2 diabetes and aortic aneurysms: protective role of macrophages metabolism
Patients presenting type 2 diabetes appear paradoxically protected from the appearance and the evolution of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Immune cells take an active part in the weakening of the aortic wall of AAAs, with an important role of the macrophages. Their pro or anti-inflammatory phenotype is partly determined by the cellular metabolism. We hypothesized that diabetes could influence the metabolic phenotype of the macrophages, and thus explain the protective role of diabetes in AAAs. (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)

The double aorta technique to treat type II and III thoracoabdominal aneurysms without use of extracorporal circulation
Open surgery to treat thoracoabdominal aneurysms requires the use extracorporal circulation (ECC). This is a key issue in the cases with aneurysms extending to the visceral arteries because an extended ECC can lead to complications of this method: large blood losses, hemolysis with its consequences on the renal, hepatic, pulmonary and intestinal functions. To avoid these complications, we propose the technique of “double aorta”. Parallel alternate circulation makes it possible to provide enough blood flow without the use of ECC.

Evaluation of the long-term effectiveness of the endovascular treatment of type II endoleaks
The endovascular technique holds a dominating place in the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. Endoleaks are the most frequent complications, and are a therapeutic challenge. The endovascular treatment of type I and III endoleaks proved reliable in the reduction of the risk of rupture. Type II endoleaks, which are most frequent by far (> 20% of stentgrafts) should be treated if they involve a significant growth of the sac. Several therapeutic techniques were described, but the effectiveness and the durability of the treatment of type II endoleaks remains questioned. (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)
