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

We discuss the treatment approach taken to target the patient’s disease and analyze the significant benefits of revascularization beyond the pedal plantar loop, particularly its role in promoting effective wound healing while lowering the risk of amputation.

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

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

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

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).
