TASC II D AORTO-ILIAC RECANALIZATION AND RECONSTRUCTION WITH SELF-EXPANDABLE STENTS

This case report describes a complex endovascular aorto-iliac recanalization and reconstruction in a TASC II D lesion. Many open questions are still present in this field, such as the role of open surgery, the necessity to use covered stents, and the neverending story between self- and balloon-expandable stents.

Endovascular options for the treatment of AIOD and popliteal artery thrombosis in a case of acute limb ischemia

Surgical thrombectomy is considered the first line strategy for the treatment of acute iliac axis and femoro-popliteal thrombosis, but in some cases it can be inconclusive and lead to controlateral and/or distal embolization and dissection.
This is a case report describing the endovascular options for the treatment of aorto-iliac obstructive disease complicated by popliteal artery thrombosis after failure of surgical trans-femoral iliac thrombectomy in a patient with acute limb ischemia.

Zero contrast atherectomy and endovascular treatment of multi-level femoropopliteal disease

This is a challenging case of a patient with severe claudication due to multi-level disease expanding from the common iliac up to the popliteal artery. The treatment includes the use of directional atherectomy for vessel preparation and DCB as antiproliferative therapy. The whole procedure is performed with CO2-angiography instead of contrast agent in order to avoid acute kidney injury. Learn also the best approach to treat patients with a multi-level disease, i.e. which lesion first.

Critical limb ischemia due to an occlusion of an aorto-biiliac prothesis

A challenging case of an occlusion of a aorto-biiliac Y graft leading to critical limb-threatening ischemia: a step by step decision making between redo laparotomy, total endovascular repair and hybrid approach. At the end follows the final treatment strategy with an analysis of all procedural steps
