Choice of antiplatelet therapy around complex revascularisation

A 79-year-old diabetic male patient with no history of coronary disease is referred to you to undergo angioplasty for tissue loss on the tips of the hallux and second toe. He is taking Aspirin 75mg. From preoperative imaging he needs a 20cm SFA occlusion stopping before the adductor hiatus recanalizing as well as multilevel tibial disease which appears to be a combination of short occlusions and stenoses. The dorsal pedal is seen in the foot and is in continuity with the arch. The PT artery appears occluded through it’s whole length.

Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (vEDS) is a condition that is quite variable. People are often diagnosed when they have easy and frequent bruising that is not explained by other causes, a spontaneous bowel, or arterial tears, or because other family members are affected. Some people have characteristic facial features, thin skin, and tissue fragility, while in others the diagnosis is only made after the identification of an alteration in the type III collagen gene, COL3A1. Many people have a difficult time getting diagnosed and getting appropriate management. Dr. Peter Byers,  Professor of Pathology and Medicine, UW Medical Center and a member of The Marfan Foundation’s Professional Advisory Board, who is one of the leading experts on vEDS, provided an overview at The Marfan Foundation’s 35th Annual Conference in Houston, TX, July 13, 2019.
