The Consequences of Negligence Claims in Arterial Surgery - An Analysis of Two Periods with an Increasing Use of Endovascular Treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: Between the two three year periods there has been an increase in negligence claims but not in compensated ones. The increased use of endovascular procedures has not influenced the pattern of compensated negligence claims.

Durability of Open Repair of Juxtarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: A Multicentre Retrospective Study in Five French Academic Centres.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: With a focus on renal function, the goal of this multicentre study was to assess peri-operative complications and late mortality of open surgical repair (OSR) of juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (JRAAA). METHODS: From February 2005 to December 2015, 315 consecutive patients undergoing elective OSR of a JRAAA in five French academic centres were evaluated retrospectively. The definition of JRAAA was an aortic aneurysm extending up to but not involving the renal arteries, i.e., a short neck

Quality Indicators in Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease Treatment: A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: This study revealed a lack of published evidence based quality indicators concerning invasive treatment for PAOD in the literature. An additional 31 indicators from the databases of professional societies and organisations have not been incorporated in prior guidelines. Interestingly, no indicator related to patient reported outcomes could be identified from either high quality sources or grey literature. Further research and harmonisation of different quality indicators is needed to enhance their evidence and subsequently improve patient centred decision making on invasive treatment.

Impact of Post-EVAR Graft Limb Kinking in EVAR Limb Occlusion: Aetiology, Early Diagnosis, and Management.
CONCLUSION: Pre-EVAR planning should focus on identification of risk factors for kinking. Adjunctive stenting is an effective prophylaxis for selected high risk limbs, yet intra-operative identification remains problematic. Also, it is noteworthy that most limb occlusions occur in the first year after EVAR, emphasising the importance of careful early follow up of high risk patients.

Overview of Primary and Secondary Analyses From 20 Randomised Controlled Trials Comparing Carotid Artery Stenting With Carotid Endarterectomy.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: The aim of this review was to carry out primary and secondary analyses of 20 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) with carotid artery stenting (CAS). METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis of data from 20 RCTs (126 publications) was carried out. RESULTS: Compared with CEA, the 30 day death/stroke rate was significantly higher after CAS in seven RCTs involving 3467 asymptomatic patients (odds ratio [OR] 1.64, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.02-2.64) and in 10 RCTs involving 5797 symptomatic patients (OR 1.71, 95% CI 1.38-2.11).

Immediate of Impact Prosthetic Graft Replacement of the Ascending Aorta on Circumferential Strain in the Descending Aorta.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: Prosthetic replacement of the ascending aorta (AA) can potentially modify energy propagation to the distal aorta and contribute to adverse aortic remodelling. This preliminary study employed intra-operative transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) to assess the immediate impact of prosthetic graft replacement of the AA on circumferential strain in the descending aorta.

Factors Associated with Hospital Dependent Delay to Carotid Endarterectomy in the Dutch Audit for Carotid Interventions.
CONCLUSION: This cohort derived from a validated nationwide prospective audit identified younger age, previous CEA, ocular symptoms, and indirect referral as hospital dependent factors for delay. High volume hospitals had a similar hospital dependent waiting time to middle and low volume hospitals. However, high volume hospitals had more indirect referrals, implying that their logistics are more efficiently organised.

CYP2C19 Polymorphism is Associated With Amputation Rates in Patients Taking Clopidogrel After Endovascular Intervention for Critical Limb Ischaemia.
This study evaluated the association between the CYP 2C19 genetic polymorphism and clinical outcomes in patients with critical limb ischaemia (CLI) taking clopidogrel after endovascular therapy (EVT). METHODS: This was a retrospective study. Patients with CLI who had undergone EVT between August 2014 and January 2017 were included. The study subjects were divided into three groups according to the loss of function (LOF) CYP2C19 alleles: (1) extensive metaboliser (EM); (2) intermediate metaboliser (IM); and (3) poor metaboliser (PM). All patients underwent a platelet function test (VerifyNow). Amputation free survival ...
