BACKGROUND The technique of balloon angioplasty of infrainguinal arteries requires standard arteriography and fluoroscopic guidance. We attempted to perform this procedure under duplex guidance to avoid the use of nephrotoxic contrast material and radiation exposure in patients with renal insufficiency. METHODS Over 16 months, 28 patients (17 men) with serum creatinine levels of 1.5 mg/dL or more underwent 37 lower extremity duplex-guided balloon angioplasties at our institution. Ages ranged… CONTINUE READING
