Popliteal injuries are significant health risk that could induce permanent functional impairment, limb loss, and in some cases death. Currently, there is a controversy about the required treatment between amputation and a limb salvage surgery, which in some cases could cause more prominent functional impairment than the amputation. Different indicators help to predict, in some extent, the risk of amputation, however most of them were described two decades ago.

Vascular injury to the popliteal artery during knee surgery is uncommon, but it has significant consequences not only for the patient but also to the surgeon since it poses the threat of malpractice l...
Popliteal arterial injury (PAI) is the second most common infrainguinal arterial injury after femoral artery injury with an incidence < 0.2%. A 2003 analysis of the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) re...
Described in the article is a clinical case report regarding revascularization of the entire arterial bed of the lower extremity in a male patient presenting with multifocal atherosclerosis, stenoses ...
Pneumatic tourniquets use in surgery to create a bloodless surgical field. The majority of orthopaedic surgeon use a tourniquet inflated above systemic blood pressure during arthroscopic anterior cruc...
Although short-term outcomes for popliteal artery injury after endovascular versus open repair appear similar, studies on outcomes after discharge are limited. We evaluated popliteal artery injury rep...
The study will evaluate patients with, at least, one previous procedure of coronary revascularization (surgical, percutaneous or both), that are referred for a new, clinically indicated, d...
The RAVE study will compare renal revascularization to medical management for people with atherosclerotic renal vascular disease (ARVD) and the indication for revascularization.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) involves poor prognosis in ICU patients. The renal prognosis at long term is unknown. The study will determine chronic kidney injury incidence and quality of lif...
The purpose of the study is to test accuracy of positive preejection velocity to predict left ventricular remodeling and long-term prognosis after revascularization in 200 patients with ch...
Elderly patients presenting with myocardial infarction (MI) and multivessel disease are the highest risk population with the worst prognosis. No trial has ever been designed to optimize th...
The continuation of the femoral artery coursing through the popliteal fossa; it divides into the anterior and posterior tibial arteries.
The vein formed by the union of the anterior and posterior tibial veins; it courses through the popliteal space and becomes the femoral vein.
A SYNOVIAL CYST located in the back of the knee, in the popliteal space arising from the semimembranous bursa or the knee joint.
Microsurgical revascularization to improve intracranial circulation. It usually involves joining the extracranial circulation to the intracranial circulation but may include extracranial revascularization (e.g., subclavian-vertebral artery bypass, subclavian-external carotid artery bypass). It is performed by joining two arteries (direct anastomosis or use of graft) or by free autologous transplantation of highly vascularized tissue to the surface of the brain.
An epithelial neoplasm characterized by unusually large anaplastic cells. It is highly malignant with fulminant clinical course, bizarre histologic appearance and poor prognosis. It is most common in the lung and thyroid. (From Stedman, 25th ed & Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
