This study was performed to describe the outcomes of reintervention procedures for a stenotic or occluded percutaneous deep venous arterialization (pDVA) and to compare outcomes following pDVA patients not requiring repeat intervention.
Through Micro-CT and histological evaluation, a recent study found that the Auryon laser not only debulks and removes intimal morphologies, but also has the ability to fracture medial arterial calcium in below-the-knee arteries.
Dr Pliagas discusses his retrospective study, recently published in JCLI, in which he and his co-investigators sought to demonstrate safety and performance of the Terumo Glidesheath Slender for tibiopedal access. Initially, tibiopedal access was considered a very experimental technique, but over the past few years, Dr Pliagas and his colleagues have learned to routinely gain access to vessels from below, using this technique.
Drs Driver and Neville discuss the crucial component of podiatry in the multidisciplinary treatment of CLTI.
Dr John H Rundback discusses his recent JCLI article, "Patterns of Failure in Deep Venous Arterialization and Implications for Management."
Daniel Clair, MD, Chair of Vascular Surgery from Vanderbilt University Medical Center discusses a number of interesting findings discovered during the BEST CLI trial.
Study co-author George Adams, MD, offers further insight into the topic in the video commentary below.
