Dr. Katherine Gallagher elected to the National Academy of Medicine

The editors of the JVS-Vascular Science would like to congratulate one of our Editorial Board members, University of Michigan John R. Pfeifer Professor of Surgery Dr. Katherine A. Gallagher, for her recent election into the National Academy of Medicine. Dr. Gallagher is the author of numerous highly cited publications and was nominated and elected for her innovative translational research on epigenetic regulation of immune cells during normal and pathologic tissue repair and other cardiovascular disease processes. Membership in the Academy is the highest national honor bestowed upon clinicians and scientists is granted to individuals who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences. In addition to this recent honor, Dr. Gallagher has also received the 2022 MICHR Basic/Translational mentor of the year award and is currently the chair of the Bioengineering, Technology, and Surgical Sciences (BTSS) NIH-study section and an original member of the NIH-National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Wound Consortium.

Save the Date, VRIC and Vascular Discovery

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 2023 Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (May 9th) and the American Heart Association’s Vascular Discoveries (May 10-13) in Boston at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. We Hope to see you there!

The Journal of Vascular Surgery is proud to announce our new capability to publish author bylines in non-English native languages

The Journal of Vascular Surgery is proud to announce our new capability to publish author bylines in non-English native languages. With the ability to print Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Arabic characters, and all writing systems that can be encoded in Unicode, the Journal will now become more accessible to authors, and to readers from around the world. We are grateful to our contributors, and all who have helped to prioritize this important accomplishment, ensuring a more equitable future for the Journal.

The Editors of the JVS-Vascular Science would like also like to congratulate our Editorial Board member Dr. Omaida Velazquez, M.D., FACS, professor and chair, DeWitt Daughtry Family Department of Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, for her election into the National Academy of Medicine. Dr. Velazquez was elected in recognition of her “pioneering research that identified E-selectin as a membrane-bound adhesion molecule that induces pro-angiogenesis and healing, in a vascular medicine field where previously only soluble factors had been considered therapeutic candidates”. Her groundbreaking work ushered a paradigm-shifting platform to reverse tissue damage by arterial occlusion or diabetes. Some other recent honors and awards include a State of New Jersey Senate Citation for “Illustrious Medical Career and Research in Peripheral Vascular Disease.” She was also the keynote scholar at Baylor College of Medicine’s 2022 research symposium and received the University of Michigan’s Conrad Jobst Lecture Award in 2019.

    The mechanistic basis for the formation of aortic aneurysms and dissection needs to be elucidated to facilitate the development of effective medications. β-Aminopropionitrile administration in mice has been used frequently to study the pathologic features and mechanisms of aortic aneurysm and dissection. This mouse model mimics several facets of the pathology of human aortic aneurysms and dissection, although many variables exist in the experimental design and protocols that must be resolved to determine its application to the human disease.

    Very few clinical predictors of descending thoracic aorta dissection have been determined. Although aneurysms can dissect in a size-dependent process, most descending dissections will occur without prior enlargement. We compared the proteomic profiles of normal, dissected, aneurysm, and both aneurysm and dissected descending thoracic aortas to identify novel biomarkers and further understand the molecular pathways that lead to tissue at risk of dissection.

    Many patients who require hemodialysis treatment will often require a prosthetic graft after multiple surgeries. However, the patency rate of grafts currently available commercially has not been satisfactory. Tissue engineering vascular grafts (TEVGs) are biodegradable scaffolds created to promote autologous cell proliferation and functional neotissue regeneration and, accordingly, have antithrombogenicity. Therefore, TEVGs can be an alternative prosthesis for small diameter grafts. However, owing to the limitations of the graft materials, most TEVGs are rigid and can easily kink when implanted in limited spaces, precluding future clinical application.

    The objective of the present study was to evaluate the bioresorption rate of collagen coating (CC) sealed on textile vascular grafts (VGs) and their healing in humans using histologic analysis of explanted VGs.

    Fluorescence contrast technology using indocyanine green (ICG) could be useful for the rapid, dynamic, and objective assessment of blood vessels and the surrounding tissues when combined with near-infrared (NIR) imaging. Although ICG is a clinically available NIR fluorescence imaging probe, it can easily aggregate and is, thus, unstable. In the present study, we examined the efficacy of a host–guest ICG–β-cyclodextrin (CD) complex, which is used in pharmaceutics to improve the water solubility, stability, and bioavailability of hydrophobic molecules, for NIR imaging after hind footpad administration in a rat model.
