In the September 2017 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, the Canadian Society for Vascular Surgery abstracts (J Vasc Surg 2017;66:e61-e85) should have included the following abstract in place of the published abstract titled “Evaluation of Biomarkers for Predicting Wound Healing in Venous Leg Ulcer” by Stacey et al on page e64. The correct abstract is as follows:

Correction

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
In the August issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society abstracts (J Vasc Surg 2017;66:e21-41) contained an error in the author byline of “Success of Atherectomy in Lower Extremity Ischemia Performed in Office-Based Laboratory”. The surnames of Benjamin Burtcher Rous, Jordan Bruce Fenlo, and Samuel Hsien La are incorrect as published. The correct surnames are Roush, Fenlon, and Lai, respectively.

Textile Aging Characterization on New Generations of Explanted Commercial Endoprostheses: A Preliminary Study

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
The goal of the present study was to assess the aging phenomena on second-generation textile endoprostheses (EPs) through explant analysis and to establish a preliminary classification of observed defects and material damages.

Fifteen Year Results of Radiofrequency Ablation, Using VNUS Closure, for the Abolition of Truncal Venous Reflux in Patients with Varicose Veins

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) of varicose veins was introduced in the late 1990s with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using the VNUS Closure device. The results of the original VNUS Closure device for the abolition of truncal venous reflux at 15 years are reported.

A Pilot Study of Femoropopliteal Artery Revascularisation with a Low Dose Paclitaxel Coated Balloon: Is Predilatation Necessary?

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
The objective was to compare 2 year outcomes in patients treated with or without predilatation prior to drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty for symptomatic femoropopliteal lesions.

Long Non-coding RNA–mRNA Correlation Analysis Reveals the Potential Role of HOTAIR in Pathogenesis of Sporadic Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) play important roles in many diseases. However, their roles in sporadic thoracic aortic aneurysm (STAA) are unclear. Therefore, the objective of this study was to construct an lncRNA–mRNA network and dissect lncRNAs that might contribute to the pathogenesis of STAA.

Renal Complications after EVAR with Suprarenal Versus Infrarenal Fixation Among All Users and Routine Users

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Previous studies comparing endografts with suprarenal and infrarenal fixation for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) have found conflicting results and did not account for differences in patient selection. This study aims to evaluate the differences in outcomes among surgeons who routinely use either suprarenal or infrarenal fixation, as well as all surgeons in the Vascular Study Group of New England (VSGNE).

Very Urgent Carotid Endarterectomy is Associated with an Increased Procedural Risk: The Carotid Alarm Study

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
The aim of the Carotid Alarm Study was to compare the procedural risk of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) performed within 48 hours with that after 48 hours to 14 days following an ipsilateral cerebrovascular ischaemic event.

Bypass Surgery With Heparin-Bonded Grafts for Chronic Lower Limb Ischemia

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Heparin-bonded grafts showed comparable results to autologous vein in terms of graft patency and survival but lower limb salvage rates.

Administration of Adult Human Bone Marrow-Derived, Cultured, Pooled, Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in Critical Limb Ischemia Due to Buerger's Disease: Phase II Study Report Suggests Clinical Efficacy

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Intramuscular administration of bone marrow-derived, cultured, pooled, allogeneic mesenchymal stromal cells (BMMSC) at a dose of 2 million cells/kg showed clinical benefit and may be the best regimen in patients with CLI due to Buerger's disease. However, further randomized controlled trials are required to confirm the most appropriate dose.

Effect of Blood Pressure Lowering Medications on Leg Ischemia in Peripheral Artery Disease Patients: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
This study suggests that antihypertensive treatment does not worsen but may improve leg ischemia in peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients. Larger multicenter trials with longer antihypertensive treatment periods are required to clarify the effect of antihypertensives on leg ischemia in PAD patients.

Evacetrapib and Cardiovascular Outcomes in High-Risk Vascular Disease

October 1, 2017 - 00:00
Although the cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitor evacetrapib had favorable effects on established lipid biomarkers, treatment with evacetrapib did not result in a lower rate of cardiovascular events than placebo among patients with high-risk vascular disease.
