The Achilles tendon is the strongest and thickest tendon in the human body. Its vascular supply is shared by the posterior tibialis and peroneal arteries. This case report illustrates how frozen biopsies of a benign lesion located on the tendinous
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to confirm the presence of dissection and to guide interventional therapy. We intend to illustrate the novel application of OCT imaging in peripheral interventions.
Dr. Thomas Zeller shares an update on the IN.PACT BTK study, a safety and efficacy study of the paclitaxel drug-eluting balloon IN.PACT 014 versus conventional percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the treatment of patients with chronic
This article will discuss the importance of lesion preparation and will review the technique and the materials to reduce the complications following inflation and deflation of the balloon with special attention to dissection in the below-the-knee (
Medtronic announced the publication of the primary endpoint results from the IN.PACT AV Access trial in The New England Journal of Medicine.1 The results reinforce that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) limits the number of reinterventions
This study demonstrated that the treatment of critical limb ischemia with below-the-knee lesions is feasible and safe, with a high procedural success rate and low access-site complication rate using the tibiopedal access approach regardless of
In the OBL, we predominantly treat patients with disabling claudication despite optimal medical therapy, who have failed exercise walking programs. We do treat some patients with limb loss and ulceration in the OBL, but case selection is crucial.
Dr. Gary Ansel explains the importance of choosing the right treatment algorithm for SFA disease in the COVID-19 environment and provides an overview of the complimentary one-hour CME-accredited course.
