Recorded video case

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.

Case report

Endovascular lithotripsy and CO2 angiography could be valuable tools in the treatment of patients with PAD and chronic kidney disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) limits the outcomes of endovascular therapy in patients with PAD, while the use of contrast agent can lead to a further deterioration of the renal function. CO2 angiography and endovascular lithotripsy were used in this case in order to limit the need for nephrotoxic contrast agent in a patient with CLI and CKD.
