OBJECTIVES: The goal of this review is to give an overview of current results and role of the kissing stent (KS) technique in AIOD treatment. BACKGROUND: Endovascular treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) involving the aortic bifurcation is challenging. The gold standard is open surgery with patency rates up to 90% at 5 years, but has considerable morbidity and mortality. The KS technique was introduced as an alternative. METHODS: The Cochrane guidelines were used to assure a systematic method...

Patients with intermittent claudication carry a high risk for cardiovascular complications. The TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) Group estimated a five-year overall mortality of 30% for these patients, the majority dying from cardiovascular causes. We investigated whether this evaluation is still applicable in nowadays patients. We therefore prospectively followed 255 male patients with intermittent claudication from the CAVASIC Study during 7 years for overall mortality, vascular morbidity and mortality and local PAD outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Despite a constantly expanding spectrum of therapeutic options for lower limb artery disease, there is not yet a well-defined consensus on the specific type of endovascular treatment that is best suited. Clinical data on patients with femoropopliteal disease treated with drug-coated balloons have not been elaborated sufficiently, especially in the case of in-stent restenosis (ISR). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: For this review a systematic research of the medical databases (http://www...

BACKGROUND: Lower extremity arterial disease (LEAD) is a well-established risk factor for concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD). There are no published data combining all three lower limb arterial segments (aortoiliac, femoropopliteal and below the knee vessels) in order to estimate CAD severity in LEAD patients. Herein has been derived a new scoring system for this purpose, which uses the well-known TASC II classification, Syntax score and, for the first time in medical literature, a Syntax II score...

BACKGROUND: Angiography is used routinely in the assessment of lower-limb arteries, but there are few well validated angiographic scoring systems. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a novel angiographic scoring system for peripheral artery disease. METHODS: An angiographic scoring system (the ANGIO score) was developed and applied to a sample of patients from a single vascular surgical department who underwent CT angiography of the lower limbs. The reproducibility of the ANGIO score was compared with those of the Bollinger and Trans-Atlantic inter-Society Consensus (TASC) IIb systems in a series of randomly selected patients...
