EJVES & EJVES Vascular Forum

The November 2020 issue is online – and brings a lot of interesting contents to your mobile device! It starts off with two Editorials dealing with chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI) and lower limb amputation. In the first, J.-B. Ricco and two co-authors of the Global Vascular Guidelines on CLTI describe current Hits and Misses when dealing with CLTI (read for free). They refer to three published articles in this issue as examples.

In the second Editorial, Kolossvary et al. recognise an East/West Health Divide Across Europe regarding Lower Limb Amputation practice which needs attention (read for free).

The first Editor’s choice paper, by Bulder et al., comes from the Netherlands and reports a Systemic Evaluation of the Overall Costs of EVAR versus Open Abdominal Aneurysm Repair (read for free). Their estimates implie that EVAR costs (up to 5 years after repair) are equivalent to open repair at a device cost of 13 000 Euros for EVAR. Hence most EVARs are not costlier than open repair, at least in the Netherlands.

The second Editor’s choice paper, by Kodama et al., evaluated data from the BASIL-1 Trial to assess posthoc the Predictive Value of the Global Limb Anatomic Staging System (GLASS) For Outcomes in CLTI patients (read for free). In 377 patients, they reconfirmed a predictive value for endovascular therapy but not for surgical bypass.

This issue also features an exciting Vascunet Report that was made open access by the authors. Grip et al. report on the Contemporary Treatment of Popliteal Artery Aneurysms in 14 Countries (read for free). They found important variation of incidence, surgical decision making and surgical techniques across countries and concluded there was a need for treatment guidelines based on prospective studies.

We hope you will enjoy this new edition of the EJVES. Stay safe and healthy!
