Cellular senescence at the saphenofemoral junction in patients with healthy, primary varicose and recurrent varicose veins - A pilot study
Vascular. 2021 May 2:17085381211012882. doi: 10.1177/17085381211012882. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVES: Cellular senescence could play a role in the development of venous disease. Superficial venous reflux at the saphenofemoral junction is a common finding in patients with primary varicose veins. Furthermore, reflux in this essential area is associated with higher clinical stages of the disease and recurrent varicose veins. Therefore, this pilot study aimed to investigate cellular senescence in the immediate area of the saphenofemoral junction in patients with healthy veins, primary varicose veins and additionall...

CONCLUSIONS: CAM use is frequent and perceived as safe and beneficial among VS outpatients; nonetheless, patients do not disclose CAM use with their primary vascular surgeons, and a wide range of reasons are given by the patients that prevent effective and open communication.PMID:33853457 | DOI:10.1177/17085381211006595 (Source: Vascular)

Comparing the efficacy of endovascular treatment for iliac vein compression syndrome with or without acute deep venous thrombosis: A single-center retrospective study
CONCLUSIONS: The endovascular treatment is an effective, feasible, safe method for treating IVCS. There is no difference in the efficacy of IVCS patients with or without deep venous thrombosis, but the medium and long-term patency of patients with deep venous thrombosis is lower than that in patients without deep venous thrombosis.PMID:33853455 | DOI:10.1177/17085381211003776 (Source: Vascular)

Optimization of factors for the prevention of spinal cord ischemia in thoracic endovascular aortic repair
CONCLUSION: Incidence of spinal cord ischemia in our cohort was low at 1.5% (2/130). Individual and bundled interventions for the prevention of spinal cord ischemia were unable to demonstrate a statistically significant effect given the low rate. Nonetheless, we advocate for a proactive approach for the prevention of spinal cord ischemia given our experience in this complex population.PMID:33853456 | DOI:10.1177/17085381211007623 (Source: Vascular)

Robot-assisted transthoracic first rib resection for venous thoracic outlet syndrome
CONCLUSION: Robot-assisted transthoracic first rib resection with only three trocars is a feasible minimal invasive approach for first rib resection in the management of vTOS. This technique enables the surgeon to perform venolysis under direct 3D vision with good patency and long-term functional outcome. Studies with larger cohort size are needed to compare the outcomes of this robot-assisted technique with other more established approaches.PMID:33832359 | DOI:10.1177/1708538121997332 (Source: Vascular)

A rare presentation and management of thrombosis of an aberrant right subclavian artery related to thoracic outlet syndrome
CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates a unique presentation of distal thrombosis of a symptomatic aberrant right subclavian artery related to thoracic outlet syndrome. The combined claviculectomy-vein bypass is a safe and efficacious surgical approach that provides durable relief.PMID:33813970 | DOI:10.1177/17085381211002735 (Source: Vascular)

The functional vascular anatomy of the swine for research
CONCLUSIONS: Swine are utilized in broad-reaching fields for preclinical research. While many similarities between human and swine vasculature exist, there are important differences to consider when conducting and interpreting research. This review article highlights these differences and presents accompanying images to inform clinicians gaining experience in swine research.PMID:33813971 | DOI:10.1177/1708538121996500 (Source: Vascular)
