February 2021: Headlines

The February 2021 issue is online and features two exciting transatlantic Editorials.

The first Editorial, by Martin Björck and Thomas Huber, offers a Transatlantic Perspective on Chronic Mesenteric Ischaemia (read for free).

The second Editorial, written by Peter Gloviczki, the Editor-in-Chief of our US sister journal JVS, offers a Transatlantic Perspective on the ESVS Practice Guidelines on Venous Thrombosis (read for free), which were published last month (read for free).

Of note, the February issue also features two EJVES Open Access papers.

The first Open Access paper, by Bernhoff et al., investigates National Incidence and Outcome of Popliteal Artery Injury Associated with Knee Trauma (read for free). It found that popliteal artery injuries occur in up to 8% after complex knee dislocations, but only in 0.2% after close to knee fractures. Very importantly: outcome was bad if vascular injury was missed. It comes with an invited commentary by Prendes et al.

The second Open Access paper, by Baderkhan et al., investigates Celiprolol Treatment in Patients with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (read for free). It is reassuring that patients benefit from celiprolol treatment, even though not all fatal vascular events can be prevented. It comes with an invited commentary by Kelly et al.

EJVS & EJVES Vascular Forum - January Headlines

The January 2021 issue is online and features the first ESVS Practice Guidelines on Venous Thrombosis (read for free).

The issue’s opening Editorial presents The current team behind the EJVES and explains the latest changes in the Editorial Staff. We thank and bid good bye to Mark Koelemay, our longstanding Systematic Review Section editor, and welcome Isabelle van Herzeele and Oliver Lyons as incoming associate editors to reinforce the team (read for free).

The second Editorial, by Björck et al., comments on a Hot Topic: the long awaited SWEDEPAD trial that was finally published in the NEJM in December 2020. This first registry based randomised controlled trial within the Swedvasc registry brings some Reassuring clarity to the ‘paclitaxel in peripheral arteries’ controversy! (read for free).

The last Editorial, by J. Earnshaw, initiates a new Debate about the indication for elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, claiming that the simplistic 5.5 cm threshold should be revisited after emerging evidence from national population screening programmes and the deferral of elective surgery forced by the Covid pandemic (read this thought provoking perspective for free).

Starting with this issue, we will now be offering three Editor’s choice papers every month, and hope to improve fast dissemination of particularly important findings within the vascular community.

The first Editor’s choice paper are the ESVS 2021 Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Management of Venous Thrombosis (read for free).

The second Editor’s choice paper, by Latz et al., reports Mortality following elective open repair of complex AAA in the US NSQIP database. They observed that 30 day mortality was almost twice that of complex EVAR. However, selection bias may play a role as well (read for free).

The last Editor’s choice paper, by Risum et al., investigates the Effect of statins on mortality after AAA repair in a systematic review involving 70 000 patients. At 3 years statins were associated with a relative mortality reduction by a third! Any questions?
