  • Effects of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy on Graft Patency after Lower Extremity Bypass August 6, 2020
    Current guidelines recommend single agent antiplatelet therapy for patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease and for consideration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after surgical revascularization. The objective of this study was both to explore prescribing patterns of single versus dual antiplatelet therapy after lower extremity bypass surgery, and to investigate the effects of antiplatelet therapy […]

  • An unwelcome proposal that may be necessary August 1, 2020
    I read the paper by Bellomo et al1 with ambivalence but agree that it raises important issues for authors and readers of medical journal articles. In this analysis of 99 highly cited peripheral artery disease papers during a 4-year period, only 50% of authors who received industry compensation had acknowledged these payments. Total payments not disclosed […]

  • Invited commentary August 1, 2020
    Endoleaks are the Achilles heel of endovascular aneurysm repair. Their elusive nature is likely reflective of our insistence on using a single nomenclature to describe reperfusion of the sac, which can arise for so many diverse reasons. However, the failure of our current classification system to understand the breadth and scope of an “endoleak” is […]

  • Treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms in the endovascular-first era August 1, 2020
    Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAAs) are fatal in the majority of cases, and mortality remains high in patients who survive to undergo surgical repair.1 Most patients with an RAAA arrive to the hospital with limited physiologic reserve, and thus it is not surprising that less invasive procedures such as endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) are increasingly […]

  • The increasing complexity of physician sexual harassment in the medical workplace August 1, 2020
    What have we learned about gender disparity and sexual harassment in vascular surgery practices? Not surprisingly, Smeds and Aulivola1 found that women surgeons had a higher likelihood of being sexually harassed. Less expected perhaps, the authors noted that 34% of male surgeons also reported sexual harassment. Interestingly, the survey also demonstrated that harassment was more […]

  • Carotid endarterectomy is not indicated for most patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting August 1, 2020
    Klarin et al1 evaluated whether performing concomitant carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with concurrent carotid and coronary atherosclerotic disease is associated with reduced postoperative stroke rates compared with those undergoing CABG alone (ie, without CEA).1 They included 994 off-pump CABG patients (497 CABG only and 497 CABG-CEA) and 5952 on-pump […]

  • Modern treatment of chronic limb-threatening ischemia requires a PLAN, clinical judgment, and shared decision making August 1, 2020
    Khan et al1 propose a functional ambulatory score in patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) using the following numeric grades: grade 0, ambulation outside the home with or without an assistive device; grade 1, ambulation within the home with or without an assistive device; grade 2, minimal ambulation, limbs used for transfers; and grade 3, bed […]
