Editor's Choice - Outcomes of Self Expanding PTFE Covered Stent Versus Bare Metal Stent for Chronic Iliac Artery Occlusion in Matched Cohorts Using Propensity Score Modelling.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim was to compare outcomes of self expanding PTFE covered stents (CSs) with bare metal stents (BMSs) in the treatment of iliac artery occlusions (IAOs). METHODS Between January 2009 and December 2015, 128 iliac arteries were stented for IAO. A CS was implanted in 78 iliac arteries (61%) and a BMS in 50 (49%). After propensity score… (More)
