1. Does primary stenting have a lower 12-month restenosis rate than PTA alone in the treatment of atherosclerotic lesions of the popliteal artery?
- Alternative hypothesis: "Primary stenting with the Edwards LifeStent is associated with a lower restenosis rate than PTA alone in patients with atherosclerotic lesions of the popliteal artery at 12 months"
- Null hypothesis: "Primary stenting with the Edwards LifeStent is not associated with a lower 12-month restenosis rate than PTA alone in patients with atherosclerotic lesions of the popliteal artery""
2. Does comparison of the two intervention groups (PTA alone, stenting) disclose differences in terms of the secondary endpoints?
3. How do the intervention methods compare in terms of safety/incidence of adverse effects?
4. What are the long-term clinical implications of the two treatment methods?

The purpose of this study to compare balloon angioplasty (PTA) vs. cutting balloon angioplasty (CB-PTA) in terms of patency and postintervention inflammation in peripheral artery disease.
The aim of this study is to study the effects of athrectomy followed by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty using Paclitaxel coated Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) in treating de novo or re-s...
The aim of this clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the novel Luminor® paclitaxel drug‐eluting balloon (iVascular, S.L.U., Barcelona, Spain) in inhibiting restenosi...
This is a prospective, multi-center, single-arm, non-blinded study designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of the Tack Endovascular System in subjects with post-balloon angioplasty...
The aim of this multicenter triple-arm randomized study is to compare two innovative techniques with the gold standard currently used and providing unsatisfactory results for the In-Stent ...
Arterial complications following arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction of the knee are rare. Injuries to vascular structures around the knee have historically been reported more...
A 75-year-old diabetic female presented with resting pain in her left foot. Her resting ankle-brachial indexes were 1.25 on the left and 1.22 on the right. We accessed the right groin and passed an Om...
Background The treatment of peripheral artery disease with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is limited by the occurrence of vessel recoil and restenosis. Drug-coated angioplasty balloons deliver ...
To the Editor: In reporting on the Lutonix Paclitaxel-Coated Balloon for the Prevention of Femoropopliteal Restenosis (LEVANT) 2 trial, Rosenfield et al. (July 9 issue)(1) suggest that angioplasty wit...
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
The continuation of the femoral artery coursing through the popliteal fossa; it divides into the anterior and posterior tibial arteries.
