Background -Numerous studies have reported favorable outcomes using drug-coated balloons (DCBs) for treatment of symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) of the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries. However, the treatment effect compared to an uncoated balloon has differed greatly amongst the randomized trials with better outcomes observed with higher-dose DCBs. This European trial was designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of a next-generation low dose (2 µg/mm(2) surface dose of paclitaxel) DCB...

Background -Atherosclerosis in the superficial femoral artery (SFA) is common in patients suffering from peripheral artery disease. Paclitaxel-eluting balloon (PEB) angioplasty, stenting and directional atherectomy (DA) have provided new options for the treatment of SFA disease, however the comparative efficacy remains uncertain. Methods -One hundred and fifty five patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease with de novo SFA stenotic or occlusive lesions were randomized to treatment with plain balloon angioplasty (BA) followed by PEB angioplasty and stenting (n=48), BA followed by stenting (n=52) or directional DA with distal protection and bailout stenting (n=55)...

A pediatric patient with critical limb ischemia secondary to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is reported. A 14-year-old male underwent extensive evaluation for worsening right lower extremity pain and ulcerative lesions of his right foot. He was discovered to have proximal occlusion of the superficial femoral artery (SFA), the distal popliteal artery, the anterior tibial artery at the mid-calf, and the posterior tibial artery at the ankle. Laboratory analysis revealed a diagnosis of APS, and he underwent a common femoral artery to above-knee-popliteal artery bypass with reversed greater saphenous graft...

A 39-year-old woman arrived at our emergency department, complaining of severe pain and swelling of her left leg. She had slipped down stairs and injured on her left leg about 3 months ago. Computed tomography angiography showed left distal superficial femoral artery's pseudoaneurysm with arteriovenous fistula and thrombotic occlusion of left common iliac vein. We decided to do endovascular intervention due to severe venous hypertension and chronic inflammation around the fistula. The femoral arteriovenous fistula was closed via stent-graft (7 mm×5, 9 mm×5 cm) deployment...

BACKGROUND: Invasive treatment of intermittent claudication (IC) because of severe atherosclerotic stenosis or occlusion in the superficial femoral artery (SFA) is controversial. This prospective randomised trial was performed to assess the impact on health related quality of life (HRQoL) of primary stenting with nitinol self expanding stents compared with best medical treatment alone in patients suffering from stable IC due to SFA disease. METHODS: One hundred patients with stable IC caused by SFA disease from seven Swedish hospitals treated with best medical treatment (BMT) were randomised to either the stent (n = 48) or the control (n = 52) group...

Contraction of muscle evokes the exercise pressor reflex (EPR), which is expressed partly by increases in heart rate and arterial pressure. Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) show an exaggerated EPR, sometimes report pain when walking and are at risk for cardiac arrthymias. Previous research suggested that reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediate the exaggerated EPR associated with PAD. To examine the effects of ROS on the EPR, we infused a superoxide scavenger, tiron, into the superficial epigastric artery of decerebrated rats...

Chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are seen in 30%-40% of symptomatic superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease. Despite advances in revascularization techniques, 10%-20% of these occlusions cannot be crossed. We report 1 case and review the literature on transcollateral retrograde crossing of the SFA from the profunda femoris. The procedural steps and devices (wires and crossing catheters) utilized by various operators are outlined. Based on an overview of current cases in the literature (19 cases, 21 CTOs), success rate was 95...

The precise description of the fascia vasto-adductoria (FVA) has become an issue of great surgical and clinical importance. Neurovascular entrapment within the adductor canal (AC) may simulate many clinical conditions for cases presented with medial knee or leg pain and ischemic manifestations of the leg. The aim of the present work is to describe the morphological features of the FVA and to elucidate its neurovascular relations. Forty thigh specimens, pertaining to 15 embalmed and five fresh adult human cadavers, were dissected in pursuit of this aim...
