Asymptomatic peripheral artery disease and antiplatelet management.
Abstract Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a hallmark of generalized atherosclerosis. Depending on the specific diagnostic criteria that are being used, the prevalence of PAD may be as high as 30 % in the population of people 70 or more years old. Unfortunately, although PAD is prevalent and has many important consequences for patients, it is often under-detected and under-treated by primary care physicians. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of the available literature on epidemiology and antiplatelets management of PAD patients. In particular, we focus on the “hidden” side of PAD burden, the a...

Lower extremity vasculitis in giant cell arteritis: Important differential diagnosis in patients with lower limb claudication.
t K Abstract Most patients with peripheral arterial disease suffer from arteriosclerosis, the prevalence of which increases with age. In some of these patients, however, the ischemic symptoms are not caused by stenotic arteriosclerosis, but by large vessel giant cell arteritis (LV-GCA), a disease also predominantly affecting patients of the older generation. Identifying large vessel vasculitis is a challenge for all physicians caring for patients with peripheral artery disease. The results of invasive treatment such as bypass surgery and angioplasty of inflammatory vascular lesions differ fundamentally from those ...

G-protein coupled receptor auto-antibodies in thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger’s disease) and their removal by immunoadsorption.
CONCLUSIONS: AgAAB directed against GPCR were identified in TAO patients with a clustering of agAAB directed against α-1-adrenergic receptor loop1 and ETA-receptor loop1. AgAA were eliminated by IA in the majority of cases. We suggest that these agAA play an important role in the pathogenesis of TAO and that their elimination might be responsible for the positive therapeutic effects reported in patients treated with IA.

New oral anticoagulants in the treatment of acute venous thromboembolism - a systematic review with indirect comparisons.
CONCLUSIONS: NOACs are as efficient in the treatment of VTE as VKA but with reduced risk of bleeding complications. Indirect comparisons indicate differences in the risk of clinically relevant bleeding events. Important issues such as monitoring and reversal of anticoagulation are still unresolved, but introduction of NOACs increased the therapeutic spectrum and thereby the potential for individualized therapy.

Venous thromboembolism and cancer: pathophysiology and incidence.
Abstract A relationship between tumor and thrombosis is well known. This review covers the aspect of incidence and pathophysio-logy of cancer-related thromboembolism. Cancer patients have an up to 7 % risk of developing venous thrombosis, partly because they are subject to various circumstantial risk factors such as surgical interventions, immobilization or drugs during their illness. On the other hand, tumors frequently generate a prothrombotic state, which may remain without clinical manifestation or result in anticoagulant-resistent venous thromboembolism. Recently discovered thrombosis-generating mechanisms co...

Cancer related venous thromboembolism - prophylaxis and therapy.
Abstract Cancer is a highly thrombophilic entity leading to a high rate of symptomatic and even asymptomatic venous thromboembolic (VTE) events in patients suffering from malignant disease. As VTE events have impact on survival and can be reduced significantly by anticoagulant treatment, guidelines on prophylaxis of these events by means of anticoagulation exist from various societies. Purpose of this review is to give a concise overview of current possibilities for prophylaxis and also for the therapy of VTE events in cancer patients.

Evaluation of apoptosis in varicose vein disease complicated by superficial vein thrombosis.
Abstract Background: The factors contributing to superficial vein thrombosis (SVT) in patients with varicose vein disease are unclear. Differences in vein wall apoptotic activity could be associated with the pathogenesis of SVT. The aim of the study is to address the role of the programmed cell death in the vein wall by comparing varicose veins with history of SVT to uncomplicated varicose veins. Patients and methods: Vein segments from the proximal part of the great saphenous vein (GSV), the distal part of the vein and from a varicose tributary, from 16 patients with varicose vein disease and one episode of SVT, ...

MiRNAs in peripheral artery disease - something gripping this way comes.
Abstract Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a marker disease for generalized atherosclerosis and represents one of the world’s major causes of morbidity and mortality. Many studies have tried to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms involved in PAD onset, progression and prognosis. In the last decade, small non-coding RNAs, termed miRNAs, have emerged as a major research focus due to their regulating function of multiple gene sets. In the cardiovascular system, miRNAs not only impact on physiological pathways like cardiac development and angiogenesis, but also play an important role in disease mechanisms and...

Treatment options of crural pseudoaneurysms.
Conclusions: Crural PAs are mainly caused by vascular intervention, most frequently by catheter thrombectomy. As a consequence, we recommend fluoroscopic-assisted balloon thrombectomy over a guide wire as routine technique. In many cases of crural PAs, conservative management is sufficient. The choice of treatment of crural PAs depends on size, location and associated symptoms. Endovascular treatment using endografts is limited by poor long-term patency.

Pathogenesis of varicose veins - lessons from biomechanics.
f T Abstract The development of varicose veins or chronic venous insufficiency is preceded by and associated with the pathophysiological remodelling of the venous wall. Recent work suggests that an increase in venous filling pressure is sufficient to promote varicose remodelling of veins by augmenting wall stress and activating venous endothelial and smooth muscle cells. In line with this, known risk factors such as prolonged standing or an obesity-induced increase in venous filling pressure may contribute to varicosis. This review focuses on biomechanically mediated mechanisms such as an increase in wall stress c...

Technique and clinical evidence of neuroprotection in carotid artery stenting.
Abstract Carotid artery stenting has been advocated as an effective alternative to carotid endarterectomy. Periprocedural embolization of debris during endovascular treatment of carotid artery disease may result in neurological deficit. Different strategies are being developed and evaluated for their ability to minimize the clinical embolic risk. Distal filter devices, proximal and distal balloon occlusion systems are increasingly used in carotid artery stenting, because they seem to be safe and effective in preventing distal embolization, according to several uncontrolled studies. However the use of embolic prote...

Effects of enoxaparin and dalteparin on proliferation and migration of patient-derived vascular smooth muscle cells.
Conclusions: This study demonstrated a difference in proliferative and migratory effects between the two LMWHs and unfractioned heparin in patient-derived VSMCs. The effects corresponded to the MAPK-ERK activation, suggesting different mechanisms of action. These results can explain why clinical trials using LMWHs to prevent intimal hyperplasia have failed to observe a reduced incidence of restenosis and do not support prolonged therapeutic use to prevent intimal hyperplasia.
