This case demonstrates the feasibility and usefulness of intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) in infrapopliteal calcified stenosis to achieve improved acute results. | Read More
The pedal loop is the third and arguably most vital part of lower extremity perfusion and wound healing. It is known that outflow is correlated with patency, yet some would argue that we don’t pay enough attention to the distal foot circulation. | Read More
We propose a dissection classification combining depth of injury from intima to adventitia with circumference of dissection. This classification exhibits six dissection grades (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2) as seen on IVUS (the “iDissection” classification).   J INVASIVE CARDIOL 2018;30(4):145-146.   | Read More
When possible, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) should be considered as a first-line choice for diabetic patients with foot ulcers and peripheral arterial disease with obstruction, as opposed to amputation. | Read More
While percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) enjoys high procedural success rates in focal lesions, the first line of therapy for the elderly, diabetic, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patient population tends to be amputation.(8) | Read More
In a single-center registry, we evaluated our 1- and 2-year patency rates as well as the clinically driven reintervention rates in our patients with diffuse de novo and instent restenotic femoropopliteal (FP) atherosclerotic lesions greater than 20 cm who received the Zilver PTX DES. | Read More
