The use of social media (SoMe) in medicine has demonstrated the ability to advance networking among clinicians and other healthcare staff, disseminate research, increase access to up-to-date information, and inform and engage medical trainees and the public at-large. With increasing SoMe use by vascular surgeons and other vascular specialists, it i...
Background Antiplatelet therapy is a cornerstone in the management of carotid artery disease following carotid endarterectomy (CEA). There is a paucity of data regarding the effect of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) on restenosis rates. Methods A retrospective review of patients who underwent CEA from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2013 was perf...
Introduction: Iliofemoral vein thrombosis can lead to debilitating edema and venous claudication that significantly worsens quality of life, especially in young active individuals. Venous reconstruction becomes increasingly complex and has worsening patency with subsequent revisions so preoperative planning is critical to success. Methods: We re...
Middle Aortic Syndrome is a rare vascular disorder consisting of narrowing or stenosis of the distal thoracic or abdominal aorta. It is described in the literature in the form of case studies and case series. The authors present an unusual case of Middle Aortic Syndrome attributed to Takayasu’s arteritis in a 60-year-old female who presented to the...
The search for etiology of stroke in a young patient may present a diagnostic challenge. In rare cases, chronic trauma to the carotid artery may be the cause of cerebral thromboembolic events. The hyoid bone lies in close proximity to the carotid artery bifurcation, and anatomic variants have been implicated in carotid compression, stenosis, dissec...
Vasospasm immediately after lower extremity arterial bypass may represent an uncommon cause of early graft failure. We report a successful case of catheter-directed, intra-arterial continuous vasodilator infusion to salvage a bypass graft threatened by severe, refractory vasospasm after incomplete response to nicardipine, verapamil, and nitroglycer...
