Defining the awake baseline blood pressure in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy
In this study, we analysed the BP during hospital admission in the days before CEA and propose a definition of how to determine awake BP.METHODS: In our cohort of 1180 CEA-patients, all non-invasive BP-measurements were retrospectively analysed. BP was measured during preoperative outpatient screening (POS), the last three days before surgery at the ward and in the operating room(OR) directly before anaesthesia. Primary outcome was the comparability of all these preoperative BP measurements. Secondary outcome was the comparability of preoperative BP measurements stratified for postoperative stroke within 30 days.RESULTS: P...

Defining the awake baseline blood pressure in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy
In this study, we analysed the BP during hospital admission in the days before CEA and propose a definition of how to determine awake BP.METHODS: In our cohort of 1180 CEA-patients, all non-invasive BP-measurements were retrospectively analysed. BP was measured during preoperative outpatient screening (POS), the last three days before surgery at the ward and in the operating room(OR) directly before anaesthesia. Primary outcome was the comparability of all these preoperative BP measurements. Secondary outcome was the comparability of preoperative BP measurements stratified for postoperative stroke within 30 days.RESULTS: P...

Carotid artery stenting in patients with chronic internal carotid artery occlusion
CONCLUSIONS: Transfemoral CAS of symptomatic patients with CTO of the ICA was feasible in half of the patients, with no mortality or major stroke, for an overall early stroke/death rate of 3.7%. Since one third of the patients with unsuccessful stenting developed stroke during follow-up, further studies to investigate the safety, efficacy and durability of CAS for CTO of the ICA are needed.PMID:34528772 | DOI:10.23736/S0392-9590.21.04662-9 (Source: International Angiology)

Health-related quality of life outcomes and Hospitalization length of stay after micro-fragmented autologous adipose tissue injection in minor amputations for diabetic foot ulceration (MiFrAADiF trial): results from a randomized controlled single-center clinical trial
CONCLUSIONS: The MiFrAADiF trial demonstrated a significant improvement in terms of physical HRQoL and a significant reduction of the hospital length of stay after injection of micro-fragmented autologous adipose tissue in diabetic patients' minor amputations wound.PMID:34515448 | DOI:10.23736/S0392-9590.21.04570-3 (Source: International Angiology)

Telangiectasia diameter in response to thermal stimulus: experimental data and possible clinical applications
This study aims to investigate any possible telangiectasias vasoconstriction or vasodilation in response to temperature changes.METHODS: This is a clinical trial with 26 outpatients of vascular surgery with telangiectasias in the lower limbs. We used direct skin digital microscopy to obtain telangiectasias images at room temperature and after the thermal stimulus with cold pads. These photographs were processed using AmScopeAmLite and the capillary diameter and area were measured in Adobe Illustrator. The data collected was analyzed in SPSS Statistics with a paired t-test for the telangiectasias area and a Wilcoxon matched...
