[Analysis and treatment discussion of 778 DSA with atherosclerosis occlusion in lower extremities].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To study on lesion characteristic and treatment of atherosclerosis occlusion (ASO). METHODS Collect and analysis 413 patients, 778 lower extremities digital subtraction angiography (DSA) from Jan. 1, 1996 to Dec. 31, 2007 in our hospital. RESULTS Left 220 (28.3%), right 208 (26.7%), both 350 (45.0%); type I 65 (8.4%), type II 194 (24.9%), type III 519 (66.6%); single level 135 (17.4%), multilevel 643 (82.6%); profound lesions stenosis 82 (10.5%), occlusion 16 (2.1%). CONCLUSIONS Multilevel lesions are the main characteristic in all cases (about 4/5); we should design individual treatment dependent on lesion characteristic. Endovascular intervention and bypass reconstruction is main treatment for ASO.
