Following an era of the use of several drug-coated balloons in angioplasty, "leave nothing behind" and stent-less strategies have been gaining attention. In stent-less strategies, it is necessary to avoid major dissections and limit flow. Balloon dilation is an important step in vessel preparation. In this study, we report a novel pre-dilation technique. We performed prolonged balloon inflation for >10 min after normal ballooning in a procedure to treat an occluded lesion in the superficial femoral artery (SFA). We used a guide extension catheter to avoid foot ischemia and obtained better angiographic results than those using short duration balloon inflation. We named this technique "Ultra Long Inflation in SFA Stenosis and Occluded Lesions using Guide Liner" or "Ultra SOUL." The Ultra SOUL technique may be considered a useful option in balloon dilation.

An idiopathic, segmental, nonatheromatous disease of the musculature of arterial walls, leading to STENOSIS of small and medium-sized arteries. There is true proliferation of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS and fibrous tissue. Fibromuscular dysplasia lesions are smooth stenosis and occur most often in the renal and carotid arteries. They may also occur in other peripheral arteries of the extremity.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
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.
A mild exanthematous inflammation of unknown etiology. It is characterized by the presence of salmon-colored maculopapular lesions. The most striking feature is the arrangement of the lesions such that the long axis is parallel to the lines of cleavage. The eruptions are usually generalized, affecting chiefly the trunk, and the course is often self-limiting.
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
