J Endovasc Ther 2019 Apr 1;26(2):199-212. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

13 Cardiovascular Institute of the South, Houma, LA, USA.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI), defined as ischemic rest pain or nonhealing ulceration due to arterial insufficiency, represents the most severe and limb-threatening manifestation of peripheral artery disease. A major challenge in the optimal treatment of CLI is that multiple specialties participate in the care of this complex patient population. As a result, the care of patients with CLI is often fragmented, and multidisciplinary societal guidelines have not focused specifically on the care of patients with CLI. Read More

17 Department of Cardiology, Nishinomiya Municipal Central Hospital, Nishinomiya, Japan.

Purpose: To report the midterm outcomes of a trial comparing self-expanding nitinol stents to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) with provisional stenting in the treatment of obstructive disease in the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries.

Materials And Methods: The SM-01 study ( ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT01183117), a single-blinded, multicenter, randomized controlled trial in Japan, enrolled 105 consecutive patients with de novo or postangioplasty restenotic femoropopliteal lesions; after removing protocol violations (1 from each group), 51 patients (mean age 74±8 years; 36 men) in the stent group and 52 patients (mean age 73±8 years; 35 men) in the PTA group were included in the intention-to-treat analysis.

Stent Placement Across the Renal Vein Inflow in Patients Undergoing Venous Reconstruction Preserves Renal Function and Renal Vein Patency: Experience in 93 Patients.

J Endovasc Ther 2019 Apr 25;26(2):258-264. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

2 Department of Radiology, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Purpose: To determine if stent placement across the renal vein inflow affects kidney function and renal vein patency.

Methods: Between June 2008 and September 2016, 93 patients (mean age 39 years, range 15-70; 54 women) with iliocaval occlusion underwent venous stent placement and were retrospectively reviewed. For this analysis, the patients were separated into treatment and control groups: 51 (55%) patients had suprarenal and infrarenal iliocaval venous disease requiring inferior vena cava stent reconstruction across the renal vein inflow (treatment group) and 42 (45%) patients had iliac vein stenting sparing the renal veins (control group).

Carotid Artery Stenting Without Embolic Protection Device: A Single-Center Experience.

J Endovasc Ther 2019 Feb 4;26(1):121-127. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

1 Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, IRCCS Sacro Cuore Don Calabria, Negrar, Italy.

Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of carotid artery stenting (CAS) performed without an embolic protection device (EPD) in a selected group of asymptomatic patients with primary internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis or restenosis after carotid endarterectomy (CEA).

Materials And Methods: Between May 2015 and May 2018, 77 patients (mean age 77 years; 60 men) underwent CAS without any embolic protection device. Forty-seven (61%) patients had primary ICA stenosis and were excluded from CEA because of high surgical risk; the other 30 (39%) patients had post-CEA restenosis (n=26) or a distal ICA flap after eversion CEA (n=4).
