The percutaneous transradial artery approach for coronary angiography and intervention has been recognized as a safe and effective method, however, it is limited for endovascular therapy (EVT) for femoro-popliteal artery because of lack of devices with longer shaft. Herein, we report two EVT cases for superficial femoral artery disease treated with a long shaft balloon through the radial artery. Although femoro-popliteal artery intervention with this approach has several limits for available devices and technical issues, it is effective for particular patients who are impossible in EVT with femoral artery approach...

OBJECTIVE: Plaque erosion is increasing its importance as one of the mechanisms of acute coronary syndromes in this statin era. However, the clinical efficacy of currently used lipid-lowering agents in the prevention of thrombotic complications associated with plaque erosion has not been clarified. Therefore, we examined the therapeutic effects of ezetimibe or rosuvastatin monotherapy on spontaneous atherothrombotic occlusion. APPROACH AND RESULTS: Femoral arteries of Japanese white rabbits, fed a high-cholesterol diet, were injured by balloon catheter, and then angiotensin II was continuously administrated...

WHAT WE KNEW: The vascular rehabilitation is an effective treatment for patients with an intermittent claudication linked to lower-extremity artery disease. This treatment increases the claudication distance of 180% with the Gardner's protocol (30 to 60 minutes of walking at least 3 times a week, walking until appearance of a mild pain) and allows also to control the vascular risk factors. This treatment is not enough prescribed for many reasons and often requires a hospitalization in a rehabilitation centre...

PURPOSE: To describe a novel technique designed to safely and precisely deploy the Supera stent accurately at the ostium of the proximal superficial femoral artery (SFA) without compromising the profunda and common femoral arteries. TECHNIQUE: After antegrade crossing of the chronic total occlusion (CTO) at the SFA ostium and accurate predilation of the entire SFA lesion, a retrograde arterial access is obtained. The Supera stent is navigated in retrograde fashion to position the first crown to be released just at the SFA ostium...

We present a novel surgical technique for lower limb revascularization after resection of an aneurysm of the persistent sciatic artery that had led to recurrent peripheral embolization and severe ischemia. The superficial femoral artery in this patient was hypoplastic, and the sciatic artery continued into the popliteal artery as the source of blood supply to the lower leg. For revascularization, we used the distally pedicled healthy two-thirds of the persistent sciatic artery, transposed it from its posterior position to a nearly anatomic anteromedial position, and anastomosed it to the proximal superficial femoral artery...

Objectives: Generally, popliteal artery aneurysms have been addressed surgically by a medial, posterior, or lateral approach. We have designed a new posterior approach that exposes the superficial femoral artery and entire popliteal artery without dividing any muscles in a just prone position. Methods and results: A 72-year old man with huge popliteal aneurysm extended to superficial femoral artery was admitted to our hospital. Surgery was performed due to a high risk of rupture...

BACKGROUND: Long segment occlusive disease in the superficial femoral artery remains a treatment challenge despite advances in open surgical and endovascular approaches. We report initial clinical results of an entirely new procedure to perform femoropopliteal bypass using the DETOUR System to create a stentgraft bypass which originates in the SFA, travels through the femoral vein, and ends in the popliteal artery, bypassing the diseased segment. METHODS: Review the initial results of the first five patients at a single site enrolled in IRB-approved, prospective clinical study using the DETOUR System...

BACKGROUND: Randomized controlled trials have reported favorable 1-year outcomes with drug-coated balloons (DCBs) for the treatment of symptomatic peripheral arterial disease when compared with standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Evidence remains limited on the durability of the treatment effect with DCBs in the longer term. METHODS AND RESULTS: IN.PACT SFA is a single-blind, randomized trial (Randomized Trial of IN.PACT Admiral Paclitaxel-Coated Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty [PTA] Balloon Catheter vs Standard PTA for the Treatment of Atherosclerotic Lesions in the Superficial Femoral Artery [SFA] and/or Proximal Popliteal Artery [PPA]) that enrolled 331 patients with symptomatic (Rutherford 2-4) femoropopliteal lesions up to 18 cm in length...

Patients with critical limb ischemia necessitate immediate intervention to restore blood flow to the affected limb. Endovascular procedures are currently preferred for these patients. We describe the case of an 80-year-old female patient who presented to our department with ischemic rest pain and ulceration of the left limb. The patient had history of left femoral popliteal bypass surgery, femoral thromboendarterectomy and patch angioplasty of the same limb 2 years ago. Doppler sonography and magnetic resonance angiography revealed an occlusion of the left superficial femoral artery (SFA) and popliteal artery and of all three infra-popliteal arteries...

OBJECTIVES: Anterior external fixation for pelvic ring fractures has shown to effectively improve stability and reduce mortality. However, these fixators can be associated with substantial morbidity such as pin tract infection, premature loss of fixation, and decreased quality of life in patients. Recently, two new methods of subcutaneous anterior pelvic internal fixation have been developed; the INFIX and the Pelvic Bridge. These methods have the purported advantages of lower wound complications, less surgical site pain, and improved quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is strongly associated with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Detection of subclinical PAD may allow early interventions for or prevention of PAD in persons with CKD. Whether the presence of atherosclerotic plaque and femoral intima-media thickness (IMT) are associated with kidney function is unknown. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional observational study of 1029 community-living adults. We measured superficial and common femoral artery IMT and atherosclerotic plaque presence by ultrasound...

BACKGROUND: Although there is a wide application of the rat extended groin flap (epigastric skin flap) in studying different clinical issues, inconsistency arises between studies because many parameters of the extended groin flap have not been well defined. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The flap is based on the superficial inferior epigastric vessels, which give into a lateral and a medial branch distally. Herein, three steps were taken to redesign this model: First, the ventral vascular anatomy was visualized through an imaging study to determine the flap borders...

OBJECTIVES: We compared the angiographic outcomes of patients treated with orbital atherectomy for profunda femoris artery (PFA) and superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease from the CONFIRM I-III registries. BACKGROUND: Endovascular revascularization of the PFA is considered a high-risk procedure given that it is an important collateral vessel when the SFA becomes occluded. Data on outcomes of endovascular revascularization of calcified PFA disease are limited...

OBJECTIVE: It has long been known that hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) broadly reduce cardiovascular events in patients with peripheral vascular disease. It was the goal of this study to determine whether there is an association between statin therapy and primary patency after stenting of superficial femoral and popliteal arteries. METHODS: The records of all patients undergoing primary nitinol stenting of the femoral and popliteal arteries at a single institution and by a single surgeon during a 10-year period were reviewed...
