Original Contribution

This is a pilot feasibility study and the objective is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the investigational device, IN.PACT 014 drug-coated balloon, compared with standard PTA in patients with CLI with CTOs of BTK arteries. 

Original Contribution

Consecutive patients scheduled for transfemoral TAVI were retrospectively grouped according to vascular access (percutaneous access and surgical cutdown). Primary endpoints were vascular and bleeding complications and 30-day mortality.

Original Contribution

Our study aims to determine whether racial and gender differences exist between Hispanic and non-Hispanic Americans regarding access and treatment for PAD care.

Original Contribution

The objectives of this trial were to evaluate the safety and performance of the temporary stent in treating infrapopliteal arterial disease.

Original Contribution

An evaluation of the technical aspects of the MicroStent (Micro Medical Solutions), a novel device specifically designed for the treatment of chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) below the knee (BTK) when used as primary treatment or as bailout in patients enrolled in the HEAL study, a postmarket, multicenter, European all-comers observational study.

Original Contribution

The primary objective of this study was to describe a novel classification system to characterize patterns of failure in deep venous arterialization (DVA) and suggest intervention strategies that correlate with these patterns.

Original Contribution

This article seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of the Celt ACD (Vasorum, Ltd) for the closure of antegrade superficial femoral artery access to treat ipsilateral lower-extremity arterial lesions.

Original Contribution

C-reactive protein levels may be reduced with long-term administration of ubiquinone (CoQ10) in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease, but the impact of a short-term period of administration in patients undergoing elective vascular surgery is uncertain.

Original Contribution

Patients with diabetes and critical limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) are at significantly higher risk of limb loss and death. We evaluate the outcomes of orbital atherectomy (OA) for the treatment of CLTI in patients with and without diabetes.

Original Contribution

Our study aim was to investigate the complete wound-healing rate in patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia after endovascular revascularization, comparing the effectiveness of wound care management by plastic surgeons with other medical specialists.

Original Contribution

We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials investigating the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous revascularization with DCB vs percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of infrapopliteal arteries.

Original Contribution

This study investigates the cost-effectiveness of bypass surgery vs endovascular intervention in CLTI with femoropopliteal lesions.

Original Contribution

Our study objective was to explore the potential cost-effectiveness of treatment with the LimFlow pDVA system (LimFlow SA) in the United States healthcare system.

Original Contribution

The study objective was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of below-the-ankle intervention in the office-based setting for treatment of chronic limb-threatening ischemia.

Original Contribution

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of below-the-ankle (BTA) angioplasty on angiographic pedal arch patency and its association with clinical outcomes in patients with chronic critical limb ischemia (CLI).

Original Contribution

The study objective is to determine whether selective coronary revascularization following lower-extremity revascularization can improve long-term survival of patients with critical limb threatening ischemia.

Original Contribution

Two prespecified literature searches were conducted via Ovid utilizing the following databases: MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR). We selected studies reporting amputation-free survival (AFS) in patients with non-revascularizable Rutherford category 5/6 CLI at a minimum follow-up of 6 months.

Original Contribution

Despite medical advancements, PAD and CLI continue to increase globally. Treatment for PAD/CLI varies widely and patients with CTOs may be more challenging to treat, requiring specialized crossing techniques and modalities. The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between patients diagnosed with PAD/CLI, with CTOs, and subsequent long-term outcomes. 

Original Contribution

This randomized, controlled trial was designed to compare the rate of postangiographic contrast-induced nephropathy between the intra-arterial injections of carbon dioxide and the iodinated contrast agent.

Original Contribution

Amputation as the initial treatment of choice remains prevalent despite advances in revascularization techniques and medical therapy. We evaluated the 7-year mortality of patients undergoing major and minor lower-extremity amputations and determined the impact of risk factors on long-term mortality.

Original Contribution

We review here the mechanism of action of OA, supporting clinical study evidence, and corresponding economic analyses.

Review

This review serves to introduce the most recent data with a factor Xa inhibitor as a novel antithrombotic strategy for PAD. 

Original Contribution

Previous studies have suggested that Black patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) may have worse outcomes than White patients. The aim of this study was to determine whether there are racial differences in outcomes of patients with PAD undergoing endovascular treatment.

Original Contribution

This analysis seeks to describe the technique of ultrasound-assisted percutaneous superficial femoral arterial access closure with a Mynx device (Cordis Corporation). The study aim was to demonstrate the technical considerations, benefits, efficacy, and safety of this technique.

Original Contribution

Below-the-knee peripheral arterial disease more often presents as critical limb ischemia. Endovascular revascularization strategies continue to evolve to achieve long-term limb-salvage outcomes. A single-center experience with optical coherence tomography-guided atherectomy using Pantheris SV (Avinger) is reported.

Original Contribution

The Outback device (Cordis) enables true lumen re-entry during subintimal recanalization of CTOs. This study compared outcomes of patients who underwent subintimal recanalization of lower-extremity arterial CTOs utilizing the Outback device via antegrade and retrograde approaches.

Original Contribution

The aim of the study was to evaluate the safety and short-term efficacy of the Ranger paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB; Boston Scientific) in the setting of CLI. 

Original Contribution

To understand the impact of fluence and repetition rate on outcomes of superficial femoral artery and popliteal artery laser atherectomy based on lesion type (calcific, homogenous, heterogeneous, and restenosis).
