Eine Methode gegen fortgeschrittene Atherosklerose wurde in Graz
erprobt und wird demnächst zugelassen.
Das „junge“ Fach Angiologie kämpft mit Nachwuchsproblemen. Das
wirft natürlich Probleme in der Versorgung auf, zumal die Zahl der
Patienten mit Gefäßerkrankungen stark steigend ist.
Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is a rare and usually asymptomatic
vascular anomaly which carries the risk of rupture and fatal
hemorrhage. It is more common in women and is usually associated with
pregnancy. We present the case of rupture of SAA, 5 days after giving
birth by cesarean section, which was diagnosed with Multi-Slice
Computed Tomografy (MSCT) angiography and was successfully operated in
the second emergency laparotomy, with the final good outcome for the
Aim: Increased arterial stiffness is an important risk factor for the
development of cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study
was to compare arterial function and other anthropometric parameters
in trained vs sedentary, healthy young students.
Background: Though the pathophysiology of initiation, formation, and
expansion of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has been intensely
researched, the distinct mechanisms driving these processes still
Background: It takes years for atherosclerosis to manifest symptoms.
However, it needs to be identified earlier because of the premature
cardiovascular risk factors in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
(RA). In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of
atherosclerosis on the ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) and
carotis intima media thickness (CIMT) in patients with RA.
Background: Traumatic popliteal arterial injury carries the greatest
risk of limb loss among all peripheral vascular injuries and is
associated with high levels of morbidity and worse functional
outcomes. The purpose of this study is to analyse the functional
outcome among patients with popliteal artery injury (PAI) due to blunt
and penetrating trauma and identify influencing factors.
