Cutting Balloon-Assisted Angioplasty of an Anastomotic Carotid-Brachial Bypass Graft Stenosis: A Case Report

Abstract

Neointimal hyperplasia leads to anastomotic stenosis in bypass grafts. These stenoses are often resistant to conventional balloon dilatation. We present a case of a carotid-brachial bypass graft stenosis, which was treated by a 5-mm cutting balloon angioplasty with a good angiographic and clinical result.
