Femoropopliteal artery recanalization: Factors affecting clinical outcome of conventional and laser-assisted balloon angioplasty

Abstract

The clinical efficacy of 44 successful conventional and laser-assisted recanalizations of the femoropopliteal artery was assessed in a noncomparative study by the life-table method. Laser-assisted angioplasty using continuous laser and a sapphire probe was performed to achieve primary recanalization in femoral artery occlusions when conventional guidewire… (More)
