PURPOSE: To investigate the midterm performance of the everolimus-eluting Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) for the treatment of symptomatic infrapopliteal atherosclerotic disease. METHODS: A single-center study prospectively enrolled 48 symptomatic patients (mean age 82.1±8.0 years; 27 men) between September 2013 and February 2018 to evaluate the Absorb everolimus-eluting BVS system in distal popliteal and tibial lesions. Mean lesion length was 20.1±10...

PURPOSE: To investigate if balloon angioplasty with a prolonged inflation time (>3 minutes) can prevent postdilation dissection in femoropopliteal lesions. METHODS: A retrospective single-center analysis examined 294 consecutive patients (mean age 74.1±8.7 years; 215 men) with de novo femoropopliteal lesions treated with balloon angioplasty between 2013 and 2018. The patients were classified into 2 groups to compare angiographic dissection patterns: 175 patients treated with balloon angioplasty for 3 minutes (3-minute group) and 119 treated for >3 minutes (>3-minute group)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate any intraoperative electroencephalographic (EEG) changes accompanying reversed flow with the ENROUTE Transcarotid Neuroprotection System during transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR). METHODS: A post hoc analysis was performed of the first 81 consecutive lead-in patients (mean age 72.8±8 years; 61 men) enrolled in the ROADSTER 1 trial at 5 participating institutions. All patients had high-grade carotid artery stenosis [53 (59.3%) left sided; 12 (14...

PURPOSE: To analyze the published treatment experience with symptomatic spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection (SISMAD). METHODS: A literature search of the PubMed and Cochrane databases was conducted for articles on symptomatic SISMAD published in English from January 2007 to January 2018. Case series reporting on both treatment modalities and outcomes were included, while those on traumatic or iatrogenic SMA dissection or SMA dissection accompanied by aortic or other visceral artery dissection were excluded...

PURPOSE: To report a novel technique ("paper rail") to facilitate inserting the tail of a microguidewire into the tip of a low-profile device during endovascular procedures. TECHNIQUE: A sterilized nonwoven fabric tape with a smooth glossy paper backing is used. The tape has several linear folds ideal for a paper rail. Holding each piece of equipment about 5 cm from its respective tip, both the tail of the guidewire and the tip of the catheter are navigated at a 30° angle toward each other in the crease until the guidewire enters the catheter...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate the feasibility and potential utility of high-resolution angioscopy during common endovascular interventions. METHODS: A 3.7-F scanning fiber angioscope was used in 6 Yorkshire pigs to image branch vessel selection, subintimal dissection, wire snaring, and stent placement. The angioscope was introduced in a coaxial fashion within a standard 6-F guide catheter. A clear field of view was provided using continuous heparinized saline flush through the outer guide catheter...

PURPOSE: To determine the long-term patency of aortoiliac kissing stents and to identify predisposing factors for the development of in-stent restenosis (ISR). METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 105 patients (median age 60.9 years; 64 women) with symptomatic aortoiliac occlusive disease who had kissing stents implanted between 2001 and 2015. The indication for kissing stents was severe claudication in 91 (86.7%) patients and critical limb ischemia in 14 (13...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the use of the TruePath crossing device as the primary recanalization tool for infrainguinal chronic total occlusions (CTO). METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 50 patients (mean age 75 years; 26 men) with 55 infrainguinal CTOs treated with the TruePath between March 2017 and September 2017 at a single center. The mean occlusion length was 138±55 mm, and femoropopliteal lesions accounted for 65% of the 55 lesions. The primary outcome measure was CTO crossing using the TruePath alone; secondary outcomes were assisted success (>50% lumen gain using the TruePath), device-related complications, and intraluminal crossing evaluated by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)...

PURPOSE: To describe a simple maneuver to facilitate the retrograde puncture of challenging tibial vessels in the lower leg. TECHNIQUE: Because of the depth of the tibial vessels at the mid to upper calf, especially in obese or muscular patients, a 7- or 9-cm, 21-G micropuncture needle is often needed to reach the artery. However, the low profile of the needle contributes to its flexibility and therefore the tendency to bend as it progresses through the deep tissues, hindering access to the target vessel...

PURPOSE: To determine through meta-analysis whether administration of statins before carotid artery stenting (CAS) is associated with fewer periprocedural adverse events. METHODS: All randomized and observational English-language studies of periprocedural statin administration prior to CAS that reported the outcomes of interest (stroke, transient ischemic attack, myocardial infarction, and death at 30 days) were included in a random-effects meta-analysis. The I2 statistic was used to assess heterogeneity...

PURPOSE: To present a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing the transradial approach for aortoiliac and femoropopliteal interventions to the traditional transfemoral access. METHODS: A search of the public domain databases MEDLINE, SCOPUS, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library Databases was performed to identify studies related to the use of the transradial approach for infra-aortic procedures. Meta-analysis was used to compare the transradial to the transfemoral route in terms of procedure success, complications, procedure parameters, and hospital length of stay...

PURPOSE: To describe how to use a steerable sheath from a femoral access to catheterize antegrade branches in a branched aortic stent-graft. TECHNIQUE: Following femoral cutdown, a stent-graft with antegrade branches destined for renovisceral target vessels was deployed in the desired position. A steerable sheath with a tip that rotates up to 180° was introduced from the common femoral artery and navigated to the antegrade branches for consecutive catheterization of the target vessels and deployment of one or more bridging stents per branch...

PURPOSE: To present the technique for removing mural thrombus from the ascending aorta using the AngioVac System. TECHNIQUE: The technique is demonstrated in a 66-year-old woman who presented with free-floating mural thrombus in the ascending aorta and was considered unsuitable for either open (comorbidities) or endovascular approaches (high risk of stroke). Because of the free-floating thrombus, the Angiovac system was suggested, although it is approved for only the venous system...

PURPOSE: To report the use of the Zenith Ascend stent-graft in conjunction with the Zenith inner branched arch device to treat type A aortic dissection. CASE REPORT: Five patients (mean age 66 years, range 52-78; 4 men) with type A aortic dissection (2 acute) and insufficient distal landing zones were treated with the Zenith Ascend stent-graft and inner branched arch devices to extend the distal landing zone. Left carotid-subclavian bypass was performed in a staged or simultaneous setting depending on the urgency of the condition...
