The current guidelines for the treatment of femoropopliteal disease recommend percutaneous transluminal angioplasty [PTA] either alone or in combination with atherectomy, drug-coated balloon angioplasty or angioplasty integrated with stent implantation as feasible alternatives. Although the use of stents has improved the patency rates following PTA in femoropopliteal disease, the rates of in-stent stenosis [ISR] ranges from 15% to 32%. The evidence and guidelines for the management of ISR post femoropopliteal stent implantation are not conclusive.

In this study, we sought to investigate the efficacy of the percutaneous transluminal angioplasty method for the treatment of critical limb ischemia (CLI) in patients with Buerger's disease in our modest cohort. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with CLI secondary to Buerger's disease who underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty between May 2014 and June 2017 were retrospectively investigated. Patient demographics, presentations, procedural details, responses to percutaneous treatment, complications, limb salvage, wound healing, reinterventions, and early follow-up data were recorded. RESULTS: The cohort included ...

AbstractCholesterol crystal embolization (CCE) is a rare, mainly iatrogenic condition. The proportion of CCE after cardiovascular procedures has not been fully elucidated. The purpose of this study was to determine the proportion of CCE diagnosed after cardiovascular procedures and to identify risk factors for CCE occurrence. Data on patients aged older than 40  years who underwent cardiovascular procedures between July 2010 and March 2017 were extracted from the Japanese Diagnosis Procedure Combination database. Inpatients diagnosed with CCE within 1 year after procedures in the same hospital were identified. Lo...
