OBJECTIVE We described our endovascular techniques for the recanalization of chronic occlusions of the brachiocephalic and subclavian arteries. Given their large caliber, origins from the aorta, and proximity to the carotid and vertebral arteries, various complex endovascular techniques are required to achieve revascularization. Navigation of distal embolic protection devices into the carotid and vertebral arteries mandates varied catheter approaches. METHODS Four women harboring chronic… CONTINUE READING
