  • Variability in hospital costs for carotid artery revascularization. [Journal Article]
  • JVJ Vasc Surg 2018 Sep 06
  • Mell MW, Tang N, … Dalman RL
  • CONCLUSIONS: VS average hospital costs were lower for asymptomatic CAS and all CEAs compared with OSs. Drivers of higher cost appear to be attributed to variation in physicians' practice as well as patients' complexity, affording an opportunity to reduce cost by establishing standard practices when appropriate.
  • Episode-based cost reduction for endovascular aneurysm repair. [Journal Article]
  • JVJ Vasc Surg 2018 Jun 28
  • Itoga NK, Tang N, … Dalman RL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Excessive costs associated with EVAR threaten the sustainability of these procedures in health care organizations. Targeted cost reduction efforts can effectively reduce expenses without compromising quality or limiting patients' access.
  • Outcomes associated with hyperglycemia after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. [Journal Article]
  • JVJ Vasc Surg 2018 Aug 25
  • Tarbunou YA, Smith JB, … Vogel TR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Among patients undergoing elective AAA repair, approximately one in six had postoperative hyperglycemia. After AAA repair in patients with and without diabetes, postoperative hyperglycemia was associated with adverse events, including in-hospital mortality and infections. Compared with those who had open surgery, patients undergoing endovascular repair who had postoperative hyperglycemia had greater risk of infection and death. After controlling for insulin administration and postoperative hyperglycemia, a diabetes diagnosis was associated with lower odds of both infection and in-hospital mortality. Our study suggests that hyperglycemia may be used as a clinical marker as it was found to be significantly associated with inferior outcomes after elective AAA repair. This retrospective study, however, cannot imply causation; further study using prospective methods is needed to elucidate the relationship between postoperative hyperglycemia and patient outcomes.
  • Molecular identity of arteries, veins, and lymphatics. [Review]
  • JVJ Vasc Surg 2018 Aug 25
  • Wolf K, Hu H, … Dardik A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Changes in the vessel's molecular identity after vascular surgery correspond to structural changes that depend on the host's postsurgical environment. Regulation of vascular identity and the underlying molecular mechanisms may allow new therapeutic approaches to improve vascular surgical procedures.
