Live case

Two different techniques for retrograde infrainguinal CTO recanalization

This live case demonstrates two different techniques of retrograde recanalization: through collaterals of the CTO and through a retrograde tibial puncture. Moreover, you will see tips and tricks about the snaring of the wire and the further steps of such a procedure. Finally, the intervention was performed with CO2 angiography due to the chronic kidney disease of this patient suffering from chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI).

Awareness

The CLI Global Society

Dr. Fadi Saab presents the background, the structure and the activities of the CLI Global Society. The lack of awareness within the healthcare community and the general public remains the biggest challenge in CLI treatment. In 2017, primary amputation was still the first-line treatment and the costs of the disease were among the greatest healthcare expenditures. In this regard, the CLI Global Society has the mission to change this and to reduce both amputation and mortality rate in this cohort.
