Original Contribution

From January 2018 more aggressive infrainguinal angioplasties were performed in our institution with a focus on establishing straight-in-line flow to the foot. Our aim was to provide data to demonstrate the impact on clinical outcomes, namely, amputation free survival.

Original Contribution

Using this retrospective study, the authors aimed to demonstrate safety and performance of the Terumo Glidesheath Slender for tibiopedal access. 


Barry Katzen interviews 10 experts on CLTI who each bring their varied specialties, experiences, and opinions to help us understand the BEST-CLI trial results. Study design analysis, generalizability, and real-world application are some of the topics discussed.


It appears that novel guidelines may be needed to assess the ischemic pedal flow. These novel diagnostic scales should associate multilevel arterial branching disease classification, standardized calcification indexation, and commonly accepted hemodynamic foot-flow evaluation.

Clinical Images

In the patient described herein, kissing-stent primary patency rate was improved via intravascular lithotripsy prior to stenting in highly calcified abdominal aortoiliac occlusions. 

Original Contribution

The aim of this study was to present results of ultrasound assisted Angio-Seal VIP closure of antegrade access after peripheral arterial procedures. In addition, the technique of closure is illustrated.
