Sleeve gastrectomy is a bariatric surgical procedure that may result in particular morbidity or mortality due to gastric fistula in the proximal part of the gastric tube. Two theories are currently proposed to explain this specific leak location. The vascular theory attributes the leaks to reduced perfusion in the gastric ...

Internal mammary artery (IMA) graft fistula to the pulmonary arteries is a cause of myocardial ischaemia after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Surgical and percutaneous interventional treatments are available, both with their inherent risk and benefits. Optimised medical management is therefore essential. A pre CABG IMA angiographic image may assist ...

Late-term thrombosis associated with drug-eluting stents may be due to the non-selective actions of antimitogenic drugs on endothelial cells, leading to delayed vascular healing after stenting angioplasty. Currently, there is a need for stent-based therapies that can both attenuate neointimal hyperplasia and promote re-endothelialization. The aim of this study was ...
