BACKGROUND Endoluminal therapy for superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusive disease is commonplace, but the incidence and outcomes of in situ thrombosis (IST) and distal embolization (DE) have not been well defined. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of IST and DE on long-term outcomes of SFA interventions. METHODS A database of patients undergoing endovascular treatment of the SFA was queried. Patients who developed either IST treated by pharmacomechanical lytic therapy or DE… CONTINUE READING
