BACKGROUND: High failure rates of femoropopliteal artery (FPA) interventions are often attributed in part to severe mechanical deformations that occur with limb movement. Axial compression and bending of the FPA likely play significant roles in FPA disease development and reconstruction failure, but these deformations are poorly characterized. The goal of this study was to quantify axial compression and bending of human FPAs that are placed in positions commonly assumed during the normal course of daily activities...

BACKGROUND: Severe limb ischaemia (SLI) is defined as the presence of rest pain and/or tissue loss secondary to lower extremity atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease. The superficial femoral and popliteal arteries are the most commonly diseased vessels in such patients and are being increasingly treated using endovascular revascularisation techniques. However, it is currently unknown whether drug-eluting stents and drug-coated balloons confer additional clinical benefits over more established techniques using plain balloons and bare metal stents, or whether they represent a cost-effective use of NHS resources...

There are three less frequent manifestations of acute massive venous thrombosis and obstruction of the venous drainage of an extremity. They are phlegmasia alba dolens, phlegmasia cerulean dolens (PCD), and venous gangrene. The term PCD differentiates ischemia-associated massive venous thrombosis from phlegmasia alba dolens, which describes fulminant venous thrombosis without ischemia. We present a 55-year-old hypertensive, who presented with paedal oedema and breathlessness at rest. About a month prior to this admission, she suffered dislocation of left patella...

OBJECTIVE: Preprocedural computed tomography angiography (CTA) assists in evaluating vascular morphology and disease distribution and in treatment planning for patients with lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD). The aim of the study was to determine the predictive value of radiographic findings on CTA and technical success of endovascular revascularization of occlusions in the superficial femoral artery-popliteal (SFA-pop) region. METHODS: Medical records and available imaging studies were reviewed for patients undergoing endovascular intervention for PAD between January 2013 and December 2015 at a single academic institution...

OBJECTIVE: In patients lacking autogenous vein suitable for infrainguinal bypass, cryopreserved saphenous vein (CSV) allograft (CryoLife, Inc, Kennesaw, Ga) may be an acceptable alternative. The purpose of this study was to examine outcomes of CSV conduit for infrainguinal revascularization. METHODS: Between February 2008 and August 2015, 70 patients underwent infrainguinal bypass grafts in 73 limbs using CSV. All patients lacked suitable arm or leg vein. Demographic data and patient outcomes were retrospectively collected using electronic medical records...

BACKGROUND: The role of collateral artery circulation in the lower limb is under debate but clinically relevant, particularly when using covered stents for occlusive disease. Covered stents seem to outperform nitinol stents in extensive disease, but collaterals could be essential in case of acute thrombosis. In the present study, we describe the collateral pathways of the deep and superficial femoral artery (DFA, SFA) and the popliteal artery (PA), observed in human cadavers. METHODS: Ten fresh frozen cadaver legs were selected...

A 96-year-old male presented with left lower extremity pain, swelling, and vascular compromise. Computed tomographic angiography revealed an actively rupturing distal superficial femoral artery aneurysm. The patient underwent prompt aneurysm excision with graft interposition and had a successful postoperative outcome. Our case illustrates the critical role of imaging in establishing a definitive diagnosis and preventing mortality.

BACKGROUND: A polymer-free peripheral paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES, Zilver PTX, Cook, IN) has shown to improve vessel patency after superficial femoral angioplasty. A new-generation fluoropolymer-based PES (FP-PES; Eluvia, Boston Scientific, MA) displaying more controlled and sustained paclitaxel delivery promise to improve the clinical outcomes of first-generation PES. We sought to compare the biological effect of paclitaxel delivered by 2 different stent-coating technologies (fluoropolymer-based versus polymer-free) on neointimal proliferation and healing response in the familial hypercholesterolemic swine model of femoral restenosis...

The large size of some retroperitoneal tumors and the complex anatomy of the retroperitoneal structures often require en bloc resection of contiguous organs and, sometimes, resection of critical vascular structures. Vascular reconstructive techniques allow reconstruction of major vascular structures, and autologous vein grafting is the preferred option. Although great saphenous vein can be used in select cases, other options must be explored in cases of caliber mismatch between saphenous vein and native vessel...

BACKGROUND: The lack of early diagnosis, progression markers and effective pharmacological treatment has dramatic unfavourable effects on clinical outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Addressing these issues will require dissecting the molecular mechanisms underlying this disease. We sought to characterize the Notch signaling and atherosclerosis relevant markers in lesions from femoral arteries of symptomatic PAD patients. METHODS: Plaque material from the common femoral, superficial femoral or popliteal arteries of 20 patients was removed by directional atherectomy...

In addition to plaque rupture (PR), calcified nodule (CN) may also have the potential to develop into arterial thrombus in the peripheral arteries. This study evaluated the distribution of plaque ruptures and calcified nodules in the peripheral arteries and their impact on the outcome of endovascular therapy (EVT). Consecutive 159 patients who underwent EVT with intravascular ultrasound guidance were enrolled. The position of CNs and PRs were assigned to any of common iliac artery, external iliac artery, common femoral artery, and superficial femoral artery...

True atherosclerotic aneurysms of superficial femoral artery (SFA) are rare and often associated with other peripheral or aortic aneurysms. We report the case of a 84-year-old patient presenting a giant degenerative ruptured aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery. The patient underwent successful aneurysm resection and bypass grafting, with a satisfying long-term follow-up and patency of the graft. The patient was also operated one year before, for a ruptured aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. This case report is rare, because we described a case of patient with multiple atherosclerotic aneurysms, who present, for the second time, a life threating ruptured aneurysm...

Stent placement for treating superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions has been approved. The Zilver PTX stent, a drug-eluting stent (DES) for treating SFA lesions, has been available in Japan since 2012. However, the penetration rate of this DES has not yet been reported. This prospective multicenter registry study enrolled 314 patients (354 limbs) to be treated by stent placement in 2014 (UMIN000011551). The primary endpoint was the measurement of the penetration rate of the DES. The secondary endpoints were measuring the freedom from restenosis, freedom from target lesion revascularization (TLR), freedom from major adverse limb event (MALE), and the survival rate at 12 months postoperatively...

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...
