Endovascular Treatment of Popliteal Artery - Balloon Angioplasty Versus Primary Stenting
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.
Minimal invasive treatment (called "endovascular") of the arteries of the lower limb remains problematic, because recurrent disease ("restenosis") frequently leads to recurrent symptoms. A...
The Advance® 18 PTX® Balloon Catheter study is a clinical trial to study the safety and effectiveness of the Advance 18® PTX® Balloon Catheter in the treatment of lesions in the superf...
The nitinol stent has proven superior primary patency than balloon angioplasty in superficial femoral artery lesions. Recent stent design improvements focus on decreasing stent fracture ra...
The Thunder Trail is a randomized , double-blinded, placebo controlled German multi-centre study on the efficacy of local paclitaxel for prevention of restenosis in the superficial and pop...
To date, no ideal endovascular strategy has been established for traumatic arterial occlusion. Here, we report the outcomes of a combination of endovascular recanalization techniques applied in two pa...
The Staff Studies comprise a database of 228 patients undergoing elective 5minute coronary artery balloon occlusion angioplasty at a single center in the pre-stent era in whom standard and high-freque...
We report about a 12-year-old girl who presented with a blood pressure difference between the extremities with the suspicion of an aortic coarctation. After imaging and laboratory tests, the diagnosis...
Restenosis is strongly attributed to stresses caused by stent-artery interactions generated in the artery after balloon angioplasty. Numerical methods are often used to examine the stent-artery mechan...
Contemporary management of critical Lower Limb Ischaemia in TASC D lesions with subintimal angioplasty in femoro-popliteal lesions, tibial angioplasty and sequential compression biomechanical device for Infra-inguinal arterial occlusion. Experience and quality of life outcome learned over 25 years.
Patients with end--stage Critical Limb Ischaemia (CLI) survive on borrowed time and amputation is inevitable if an aggressive management stratagem is not instigated. Our primary aim is to equate effec...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
