It is difficult to treat a thrombotic embolism in the common femoral artery or popliteal artery (POP A), i.e., the non-stenting zone. We report a new technique for the treatment of thrombotic embolism in the non-stenting zone using a self-expandable nitinol stent. Case 1 had an external iliac artery (EIA) occlusion that occurred over several months. A self-expandable nitinol stent was placed in the right EIA lesion via a retrograde approach using a distal 9-Fr balloon protection guide catheter in the right femoral artery...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is widely used with excellent results, but its infectious complications can be devastating. In this paper, we report a multicenter experience with infected EVAR, symptoms, and options for explantation and their outcome. METHODS: We have reviewed all consecutive endograft explants for infection at 11 French university centers following EVAR, defined as index EVAR, from 1998 to 2015. Diagnosis of infected aortic endograft was made on the basis of clinical findings, cultures, imaging studies, and intraoperative findings...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the safety and feasibility of the transpedal approach as an alternate arterial access site for iliac artery intervention. BACKGROUND: The common femoral artery is the traditional access site for the endovascular treatment of iliac artery stenoses. However, this approach is associated with complication rates as high as 2%, including retroperitoneal bleeding which carries high patient morbidity and mortality. Furthermore, the standard femoral approach is associated with longer recovery times and longer time to ambulation which are important considerations especially when performing procedures in an ambulatory setting...

We report a case in which a stent graft and an Amplatzer® vascular plug (AVP) were effective for the treatment of chronic aneurysmal aortic dissection. The patient was a 52-year-old man. At 45 years of age, he developed acute aortic dissection, for which he underwent surgery four times with prosthetic graft replacement in the abdominal aorta, descending thoracic, ascending aorta (without neck branch reconstruction), and thoracoabdominal aorta with the reconstruction of the celiac, superior mesenteric and bilateral renal arteries...

Currently, the treatment of thromboembolic ischemia of the lower extremities includes percutaneous rotational thrombectomy and aspiration devices. However, the standard approach for endovascular treatment requires the administration of iodine contrast agents, which is problematic in patients with pre-existing renal disease and diabetes. Herein, we describe a case of a CO2 angiography guided endovascular thrombectomy of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) in a young patient with critical limb ischemia. Mechanical thrombectomy using the Rotarex system, catheter aided aspiration and subsequent stent placement in the SFA was entirely guided using CO2 angiography...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of a new paclitaxel-coated balloon catheter in the treatment of stenotic or occluded femoropopliteal arteries. BACKGROUND: The incidence of restenosis can be reduced by the use of drug-coated balloons. However, dose, coating composition, and technology are decisive for efficacy. METHODS: Two hundred Chinese patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease were prospectively randomized to treatment with new paclitaxel-coated or standard uncoated balloon catheters...

PURPOSE: To quantify the deformation behavior of the diseased femoropopliteal segment and assess the change to deformation behavior due to various stent placements. METHODS: The length and curvature changes of 6 femoropopliteal segments (the right and left superficial femoral and popliteal arteries) from 3 cadavers were measured in 3-dimensional space based on rotational angiography image data in straight leg and flexed hip/knee (50°/90°) positions before and after placement of nitinol stents of varying type (EverFlex, Misago, and BioMimics 3D) and length (60, 100, and 200 mm) in different locations along the arteries...

Endovascular techniques have improved markedly over the past several decades. Plain old balloon angioplasty can only reach patencies around 40% after 1 year. Scaffolding stents have resulted in improved short-term results but encountered limitations for longer-term durability. With the introduction of drug-eluting technologies the process of intimal hyperplasia might be slowed, resulting in improved long-term patency results. At first, limus-eluting technologies were not able to transfer the enthusiasm from the coronaries to the infrainguinal vascular bed...

Vascular access and closure remain a challenge in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). This single-center study aimed to report the incidence, predictive factors, and clinical outcomes of access-related vascular injury and subsequent vascular intervention. During a 30-month period, 365 patients underwent TAVR and 333 patients (94%) were treated by true percutaneous transfemoral approach. Of this latter group, 83 patients (25%) had an access-related vascular injury that was managed by the use of a covered self-expanding stent (n = 49), balloon angioplasty (n = 33), or by surgical intervention (n = 1)...

Failing Fontan physiology in univentricular hearts manifest with protein-losing enteropathy, plastic bronchitis, low cardiac output, and recurrent effusions. Transcatheter creation of fenestration in a failing Fontan may be useful in alleviating the symptoms by improving the cardiac output. It is traditionally achieved by puncturing through the conduit from femoral or jugular venous access. In the absence of good venous path, transhepatic access provides a direct route for needle puncture of the conduit. If marked intimal ingrowth into the conduit results in increasing rigidity and makes the conduit nonyielding, alternative approaches may be needed...
