Abstract Background The efficacy and safety of combined proximal covered stent-grafting with distal bare stenting are controversial because of the lack of evidence. This systematic review and meta-analysis compares the outcomes of combined proximal covered stent-grafting with those of distal bare stenting (BS group) and proximal covered stent-grafting without distal bare stenting (non-BS group). Methods The MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central Register for Controlled Trials databases and key re...

Similar to previous years, 1–3 the current article reviews groundbreaking science published 2019 in the area of aortic and peripheral arterial diseases (PAD) as well as venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) that will affect our daily clinical practice. With the growing recognition of PAD, it will be necessary to consolidate imprecisions in terminology. Many are used to the acronym PAD for atherosclerotic disease of the lower extremity arteries. Others have used the same acronym to qualify atherosc...

Background Acute type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) is a life-threatening disease. The aim of this study was to examine the role of tear size in the hemodynamic change and help improve the treatment level of this extremely dangerous disease. Methods A total of 120 ATAAD patients treated in our institution from November 2014 to December 2016 were divided into three groups according to proximal and distal tear size ratio (PDTSR). There were 35 patients in group A (PDTSR ≥2:1), 44 patients in group B...
