Prevalence and predictors of coexistent silent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm without previous symptomatic cardiovascular diseases. Angiology, 63(5): 380-5.
Although patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) often have other cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), the exact prevalence remains unclear. We aimed to determine the prevalence and predictors of coexistent silent atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (SACVDs) in patients with AAA without a history of CVD. Consecutive 157 patients with AAA (mean age, 73 years), without any previous history of CVD, were included. Silent myocardial ischemia (SMI), cerebrovascular disease (CeVD), peripheral ...

Measurement and optimization of patient radiation doses in endovascular aneurysm repair. Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg, 43(5): 534-9.
The study assessed radiation exposure during EVAR. Two types of patient dose were estimated: effective dose (ED), which allows estimation of radiation risk to the EVAR patient population; and Peak Skin Dose (PSD), which allows us assess the potential for an individual patient to receive a radiation skin injury. An ancillary aim was to examine dose optimization in EVAR procedures. Based on 111 EVAR cases we estimated average ED as 12.4 mSv. Cumulative patient dose in our centre was lower than ...
