Effects of a standardized emergency department protocol on after-hours use of venous duplex ultrasound.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center, Albuquerque, NM.

Objective: Vascular laboratory (VL) venous duplex ultrasound is the "gold standard" for diagnosis of lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT), which is linked to many morbid conditions. Decreasing night and weekend use of VL services in the emergency department (ED) represents a potentially viable means of reducing costs as skilled personnel must remain on call and receive a wage premium when activated. We investigated the effects of workflow changes that required ED providers to use a computerized decision-making tool, integrated into the electronic medical record, to calculate a Wells score for each patient considered for an after-hours venous duplex ultrasound study for suspected DVT.

Α systematic review and meta-analysis of the efficacy of aortic anastomotic devices.

J Vasc Surg 2019 Feb;69(2):598-613.e7

Biomedical Engineering Unit, First Department of Cardiology, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Objective: One of the factors contributing to complications related to open repair of the aorta is the construction of a hand-sewn anastomosis. Aortic anastomotic devices (AADs), such as the intraluminal ringed graft (IRG), and the anastomotic stenting technique have been developed to perform a sutureless and less complicated anastomosis. This study performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature reporting clinical use of AADs and aimed to assess, primarily, the effect of each device on 30-day overall and operation-related mortality and aortic cross-clamping time and, secondarily, the rate of successful two-sided application of the IRG device and the operation-related morbidity for each device.

Background: Groin wound infections represent a substantial source of patients' morbidity and resource utilization. Definitions and reporting times of groin infections are poorly standardized, which limits our understanding of the true scope of the problem and potentially leads to event under-reporting. Our objective was to investigate the timing and variation of groin wound complications after vascular surgery. Read More

Vascular access for hemodialysis in the elderly.

J Vasc Surg 2019 Feb;69(2):517-525.e1

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Baltimore, Md. Electronic address:

Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the outcomes of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) with arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) in a large population-based cohort of elderly patients in the United States.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed of all patients ≥75 years old in the prospectively maintained United States Renal Database System who had an AVF or AVG placed for hemodialysis (HD) access between January 2007 and December 2011. Outcomes were mortality, conduit patency, maturation, time to catheter-free dialysis, and infection. Read More

A randomized trial of vonapanitase (PATENCY-1) to promote radiocephalic fistula patency and use for hemodialysis.

J Vasc Surg 2019 Feb;69(2):507-515

Proteon Therapeutics, Waltham, Mass.

Objective: Arteriovenous fistulas created in patients with chronic kidney disease often lose patency and fail to become usable. This prospective trial evaluated the efficacy of vonapanitase, a recombinant human elastase, in promoting radiocephalic fistula patency and use for hemodialysis.

Methods: PATENCY-1 was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that enrolled 349 patients on or approaching hemodialysis and being evaluated for radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula creation. Read More
