Critical limb ischemia is present in only about 1% to 2% of all patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), but it is the most severe form of PAD and is responsible for 185,000 amputations in the United States each year. | Read More

We investigate whether vascular closure devices selected for characteristics optimal for venous closure can deliver a safe and effective way to achieve rapid hemostasis. | Read More

Our aim was to determine awareness of PAD treatment options and referral of patients at high risk of PAD to specialty care via a cross-sectional online survey of 500 clinicians from across the United States. | Read More

Ultrasound-guided gas sclerotherapy (UGGS) is a new method for sclerosing varicose veins. The objective of this method is to increase sclerosant contact with the venous endothelium to obtain the best sclerosing effect, achieved by a depletion of… | Read More

Subjects with critical limb ischemia (CLI) have high 1-year amputation and mortality rates.The clinical profile and outcomes of CLI subjects were characterized using the PRIME registry and compared with previous literature to highlight the… | Read More

This study assesses the acute safety of directional atherectomy for endovascular treatment of peripheral arterial disease in infrainguinal arteries. | Read More

The authors evaluate the effect of percutaneous renal denervation in patients with resistant arterial hypertension in a prospective, single-center cohort study. The results showed a drop in office systolic blood pressure measurements.  | Read More

The authors examine outcomes of surgical and endovascular repair of popliteal artery injury and find that endovascular repair is increasingly being used. | Read More

The authors conducted a study to determine the efficacy of sequential pneumatic compression therapy in patients with CLI between 2005 and 2015, where patients were commenced on a 12-week treatment protocol. Sustained clinical improvement was 68% at… | Read More

This retrospective analysis demonstrates that the implementation of a comprehensive limb salvage program can lead to increased angiographic assessment and endovascular treatment of high-risk CLI patients, preventing unnecessary major amputations… | Read More
