i've been reading your discussions about vascular techniques. i'm amazed at your technical knowledge as well as your overall grasp of the importance of acting TODAY. the discussions remind me of how our vascular rounds sounded back in the 60s when i was a resident.all the techniques were just evolving and great surgeons' opinions were basically the only information available. the problem was that no one really knew enough about what was the problem and therefore finding a solution was pretty tough. randomized, double blinded multi-institutional studies, IRBs, evidence based medicine were all 25 yrs in the future. I see that there are registries and a number of randomized studies underway but i can't find outcomes. can you direct me please?

here is a video that illustrates the point. Please bear with the commercial, and content contains some profanity but the video is very relevant.
