BACKGROUND Distal embolization (DE) is one of the most serious complications of endovascular therapy (EVT). The purpose of the present study was to characterize the lesions that indicate a high risk of DE in patients undergoing EVT, and to investigate the pathological characteristics of the debris. METHODS Seventy-three consecutive patients with(More)
AIM The vascular endothelium plays a key role in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. Flow-mediated dilation (FMD) is a novel way of assessing endothelial function. Cilostazol is a unique antiplatelet drug that also has the potential to improve endothelial function. The objective of this present study was to investigate the effects of cilosatzol on(More)
Stent placement for treating superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions has been approved. The Zilver PTX stent, a drug-eluting stent (DES) for treating SFA lesions, has been available in Japan since 2012. However, the penetration rate of this DES has not yet been reported. This prospective multicenter registry study enrolled 314 patients (354 limbs) to be(More)
Acute limb ischemia (ALI) is caused by embolisms or progressive atherosclerosis. We report the case of a 68-year-old female who presented with acute total occlusion of left iliac artery due to remarkably massive ascites from pancreatic cancer. To our knowledge, no other case reports of ALI caused by acute compartment syndrome have been published. We treated(More)
The aim of the present study was to clarify the characteristics of Japanese critical limb ischemia (CLI) patients and analyze the rates of real-world mortality and amputation-free survival (AFS) in all patients with Fontaine stage IV CLI who were treated with/without revascularization therapy by an intra-hospital multidisciplinary care team. All consecutive(More)
