this randomized controlled trial will compare the impact of routine use of completion angiography versus using it on selective bases after thromboembolectomy in patients with acute lower l...
The principal research question is which treatment modality between open surgical, endovascular and conservative therapy is the most effective in terms of limb salvage, survival and reinte...
Treatment of patients with end-stage renal disease and critical limb ischemia still poses challenges to vascular medicine due to limited survival, comorbidities and infrapopliteal involvem...
This is a prospective, multi-center, randomized (2:1) trial of symptomatic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) secondary to atherosclerotic lesions (stenotic or occluded) of the inf...
The purpose of this study is to determine if an MRI technique called Blood Oxygen Level Dependent, or BOLD, can be used to evaluate blood flow in the leg before and after treatment with st...
Acute limb ischemia (ALI) of the lower extremity is a potentially devastating condition that requires urgent and definitive management. This challenging scenario is often treated with endovascular, op...
Endovascular first strategy for critical limb ischemia is widely accepted, because of the increasing patency rates and minimal invasive character, especially in elderly patients. Nonetheless, the impa...
Tibial interventions for critical limb ischemia are now commonplace. Restenosis and occlusion remain barriers to durability after intervention. The aim of this study was to examine the patient-centere...
Catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) is a therapeutic option with acceptable results in patients with acute limb ischaemia (ALI) but with severe systemic or intracranial bleeding being the most signif...
An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
Changing an operative procedure from an endoscopic surgical procedure to an open approach during the INTRAOPERATIVE PERIOD.
The region of the lower limb in animals, extending from the gluteal region to the FOOT, and including the BUTTOCKS; HIP; and LEG.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.
