Volume 48, Issue 1 March 2024 JVU 481-15 | Accuracy of Duplex Ultrasound for Detecting Renal Artery Stenosis: A Systematic Review
This issue contains a review on the effectiveness of duplex ultrasound for detecting renal artery stenosis, a review of the supra-aortic trunks in the evaluation of ischemic strokes, a review on arteriovenous fistula stenosis, various abstracts selected for the SVU 2023 Annual Conference, a review on acquired uterine arteriovenous malformations and embolization treatment, and a report on the utilization of deep vein arterialization for limb salvage.

After reading and studying the papers used for CME in the March 2024 Issue of the Journal for Vascular Ultrasound, participants will be able to:

1. State the gold standard for the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis.
2. State the condition associated with fibromuscular dysplasia in children.
3. List the ultrasound characteristics used to access renal artery stenosis.
4. Define positive predictive value.
5. Explain the advances in diagnostic ultrasound over the years.
6. List risk factors that correlate with ischemic stroke.
7. State the second leading cause of death and disability in the world.
8. State the volume flow associated with an increased risk of arteriovenous fistula thrombus.
9. Explain the methods used to measure intimal medial thickness.
10. Describe the ultrasound characteristics of a venous stenosis.
11. List the complications associated with an upper extremity arterial aneurysm.
12. Explain the non-invasive use of vascular elastography.
13. State the characteristics of Lemierre’s syndrome.
14. Explain the usefulness of intravascular lithotripsy in patients with vascular disease.
15. List the imaging modalities used to diagnose a uterine arteriovenous malformation.
16. Explain the treatment options for a uterine arteriovenous malformation.
17. List the ultrasound characteristics of an arteriovenous malformation.
18. State the Rutherford category for critical limb ischemia.
19. Explain how a deep vein arterialization is surgically created.
20. List complications associated with deep vein arterialization.
