Background: In patients with iliofemoral chronic venous disease (CVD) secondary to post-thrombotic or non-thrombotic obstruction, venous outflow obstruction after adequate anticoagulation alone is still frequent and post-thrombotic syndrome is a common complication. Thus, we aimed to evaluate mid-term effectiveness and safety of a novel braided venous stent for venous outflow obstruction treatment.

Reducing Nontraumatic Lower-Extremity Amputations by 20% by 2030: Time to Get to Our Feet: A Policy Statement From the American Heart Association
March 25, 2021
Nontraumatic lower-extremity amputation is a devastating complication of peripheral artery disease (PAD) with a high mortality and medical expenditure. There are ≈150 000 nontraumatic leg amputations every year in the United States, and most cases occur in patients with diabetes. Among patients with diabetes, after an ≈40% decline between 2000 and 2009, the amputation rate increased by 50% from 2009 to 2015. A number of evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for PAD can reduce amputation risk. However, their implementation and adherence are suboptimal. Some racial/eth...
