The aim of this study was to compare intravascular-ultrasound (IVUS) assistance for Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) to standard assistance by angiography.
We read with great interest the very interesting and novel technique described by Takashima et al. on creation of an arteriovenous fistula using the dorsal vein of the hand by transposition of the dorsal metacarpal vein and anastomosing to the radial artery (RDAVF). 
This article is a reply to the letter.
Surgical exposure of a high carotid bifurcation (HCB) for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) can be technically challenging due to the presence of bony structures in the most cranial portion of the neck and is associated with significant morbidity making carotid artery stenting (CAS) a common alternative. However, a high transverse neck incision with subplatysmal flaps facilitates CEA in these patients without additional exposure techniques. We present a high transverse neck incision with subplatysmal flaps as an alternative to the standard surgical exposure of the carotid bifurcation to facilitate CEA in patients with HCB.
There is no current accepted standard in safety evaluation for radial artery intervention. We sought to compare the accuracy of various subjective and objective screening techniques in predicting safety for radial artery intervention.
Superficialization, the second stage of a two-stage brachio-basilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF), can be performed under local (LA), regional (RA), or general anesthesia (GA). Given the numerous comorbidities in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), our preference is to use RA or LA when feasible. Our goal was to review the success rate of RA and LA, need for conversion to GA, and cardiac morbidity and mortality for BB-AVF superficialization.
The en bloc resection of inferior vena cava (IVC) leiomyosarcoma often necessitates IVC reconstruction. The objective of this study is to examine outcomes after IVC reconstruction and determine optimal graft sizing.
Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) may lead to graft dysfunction and failure. Progressive deterioration of renal allograft function may be exacerbated by contrast-induced nephrotoxicity during iodine contrast administration for renovascular imaging of allografts. We present our institutional experience of endovascular management for TRAS using CO2 digital subtraction angiography (CO2-DSA) and balloon angioplasty to manage failing renal transplants.
Venous resection during pancreaticoduodenectomy for the excision of pancreatic cancer allows for a more complete resection with negative margins, which increases survival. When the resected vein is greater than 3cm, reconstruction with an interposition graft is recommended. However, consensus regarding the optimal venous conduit has not been reached. The objective of this study is to compare outcomes between the paneled saphenous vein graft (SVG) and internal jugular vein graft (IJVG) in portomesenteric venous reconstructions after pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Renal artery (RA) dissection may occur during endovascular treatment of thoraco-abdominal aneurysms. The aim of this paper is to report the use of kissing coronary stents in the renal bifurcation as a bailout solution for dissection after F/B-EVAR.
