Background: The optimal length of saphenous vein grafts can be challenging in surgical coronary revascularization. It is the cornerstone for graft patency. In this study, we tried to demonstrate the value of 3D printing in determining optimal saphenous graft length.

Catheter-related venous thrombosis is one of the most important complications of central venous catheters. The aim of this prospective study was to assess the risk factors that may be important in the development of catheter-related thrombosis. Multiple lumen (n = 20) and single lumen (n = 24) polyurethane catheters were inserted to the subclavian vein by the infraclavicular approach in 44 consecutive patients. All variables that may be significant for the development of thrombosis related to the patient, t...
How do annuloplasty rings affect mitral leaflet dynamic motion?
Bothe, Wolfgang; Kvitting, JPE; Swanson, Julia; Göktepe, Serdar; Vo, Kathy; Ingels, Neil; Miller, Craig (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-09-01)
Objectives: To define the effects of annuloplasty rings (ARs) on the dynamic motion of anterior mitral leaflet (AML) and posterior mitral leaflet (PML). Methods: Fifty-eight adult, Dorsett-hybrid, male sheep (49 5 kg) had radiopaque markers inserted: eight around the mitral annulus, four along the central meridian (from edge to annulus) of the AML (#A(1)-#A(4)) and one on the PML edge (#P-1). True-sized Edwards Cosgrove (COS, n = 12), St Jude RSAR (St. Jude Medical, St. Paul, MN, USA) (n = 12), Carpentier-E...

Background-The dynamic changes of anterior mitral leaflet (AML) curvature are of primary importance for optimal left ventricular filling and emptying but are incompletely characterized.
Predicting the Outcome of Limb Revascularization in Patients With Lower-extremity Arterial Trauma: Development and External Validation of a Supervised Machine-learning Algorithm to Support Surgical Decisions.

Objectives: Estimating the likely success of limb revascularization in patients with lower-extremity arterial trauma is central to decisions between attempting limb salvage and amputation. However, the projected outcome is often unclear at the time these decisions need to be made, making them difficult and threatening sound judgement. The objective of this study was to develop and validate a prediction model that can quantify an individual patient's risk of failed revascularization. Methods: A BN progno...
Meta-analysis of prognostic factors for amputation following surgical repair of lower extremity vascular trauma
Perkins, Z. B.; Yet, Barbaros; Glasgow, S.; Cole, E.; Marsh, W.; Brohi, K.; Rasmussen, T. E.; Tai, N. R. M. (Wiley, 2015-04-01)
Background: Lower extremity vascular trauma (LEVT) is a major cause of amputation. A clear understanding of prognostic factors for amputation is important to inform surgical decision-making, patient counselling and risk stratification. The aim was to develop an understanding of prognostic factors for amputation following surgical repair of LEVT.
