- Comparison of the effects of open and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair on long-term renal function using chronic kidney disease staging based on glomerular filtration rateJoseph L Mills
The University of Arizona Health Sciences Center, University Medical Center, Tucson, AZ 85724, USA
J Vasc Surg 47:1141-9. 2008..Our primary objectives were to assess serial renal function in patients undergoing EVAR and open repair (OR) and to evaluate the relative effects of method of repair on renal function...
- Superficial femoral artery thrombosis as a cause for distal embolism in primary antiphospholipid syndromeLannery S Lauvao
University of Arizona Health Science Center and Southern Arizona Veterans Affairs Health Care System, Tucson, Ariz, USA
J Vasc Surg 48:472-7. 2008..The area of thrombus was resected and reconstructed using a cephalic vein interposition graft. This report reviews antiphospholipid syndrome and identifies potential questions and problems relating to a rare clinical presentation...
- Aortoiliac aneurysm repair in kidney transplant recipientsLuis R Leon
Department of Vascular Surgery, Southern Arizona Veteran Affairs Health Care System SAVAHCS, Tucson, Arizona 85723, USA
Vasc Endovascular Surg 43:30-45. 2009..Adverse outcomes were all allograft failure independent in both groups. EVAR without special allograft protection measures seems to be equally effective as open surgery with or without adjuvant kidney transplant perfusion...

Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Arizona Health Science Center, Tucson, AZ 85724, USA
J Vasc Surg 41:462-8. 2005..However, MRA is relatively nonspecific compared with CA and results in significant overestimation of renal artery stenosis in nearly one third of patients. To reduce unnecessary CA, clinicians should consider supplemental studies...
