This population-based cohort study evaluates whether ankle-brachial indices identified through electronic health records among community-dwelling patients with peripheral artery disease are associated with limb revascularization or amputation.
This secondary analysis of the Examining Use of Ticagrelor in Peripheral Artery Disease (EUCLID) trial examines the risk of ischemic events in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and polyvascular disease (PAD with coronary artery disease [CAD] and/or cerebrovascular disease [CVD]).
This cross-sectional, time-series analysis examines the prevalence of open and endovascular elective and ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs by age and sex from 2003 to 2016 in Ontario, Canada.
This Guide to Statistics and Methods details use of the Sociey for Vascular Surgery’s Vascular Quality Improvement Program, a robust database that provides detailed data of common vascular procedures.
This mouse study examines the effect of ciprofloxacin on aortic aneurysm and dissection development in mice.
A 74-year-old man presented with a 3-month history of weight loss, anorexia, and back pain. Physical examination revealed poor dental hygiene and findings in the lower extremity suggestive of postthrombotic syndrome. What is your diagnosis?
This registry-based multicenter cohort study examines long-term survival after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS) in real-world practice using a novel instrumental variable method designed for time-to-event outcomes compared with traditional risk-adjustment models used in observational studies for survival analyses.
This population-based cohort study of commercially insured patients examines the association between use of oral medication for type 2 diabetes and lower extremity amputation, peripheral arterial disease, critical limb ischemia, osteomyelitis, and ulcer.
This systematic review and meta-analysis examines 20 studies including 8800 patients with ascending aortic aneurysm (AsAA) to determine the growth rate of aneurysms; the risk of all-cause mortality, aortic dissection, and aortic rupture; and the incidence of elective surgery in AsAA with tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) or bicuspid aortic valve (BAV).
This study examines the differences in clinical presentation, arterial bed involvement, vascular events, and need for vascular procedures between younger and older patients with fibromuscular dysplasia.
This study uses more than 3 million records from the US national end-stage renal disease registry between 2000 and 2014 to assess the rates of lower extremity amputation among patients with end-stage renal disease who receive dialysis and whether those rates are associated with patient characteristics and comorbidities.
This JAMA Clinical Update reviews CVD risk stratification of patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and current standards of practice for use of antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies.
This study explores whether the association between an SNP in the ADCY9 gene and a reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events could be replicated for another cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitor, evacetrapib, in patients with high-risk vascular disease.
This cohort study estimates the proportions of emergency department visits attributable to symptoms of imminent ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, acute myocardial infarction, stroke, aortic dissection, and subarachnoid hemorrhage that end in discharge without diagnosis.
