Fifteen patients with symptomatic iliac artery stenosis were treated with intraluminal placement of balloon-expandable stents. Before treatment, 14 patients had intermittent claudication, and one had a limb at risk for amputation. One patient had diabetes mellitus, nine had hypertension, and all were long-term smokers. Two patients had surgical placement of the stent; in one patient this was part of a combined revascularization procedure. All other stents were placed percutaneously. The… Expand
Balloon-expandable intravascular stents in atherosclerotic iliac artery stenosis: preliminary experience.
The experience suggests that percutaneous insertion of balloon-expandable intravascular stents is a valuable technique for treatment of external and common iliac stenosis. Expand
Early experience with the Palmaz expandable intraluminal stent in iliac artery stenosis
In this early experience, the Palmaz intraluminal stent appears to be valuable for the management of post-percutaneous balloon angioplasty restenosis, elastic recoil, and percutaneous Balloon angiopLasty-induced dissection, although it is not without complications. Expand
Primary Utilization of Stents in Angioplasty of Superficial Femoral Artery
Primary stenting of segmental lesions of the superficial femoral artery produced satisfactory results immediately and during long-term follow-up, and there was no symptomatic restenosis in this study. Expand
Midterm results of renal artery stenting
The results suggest that the endovascular prosthesis represents an important adjunct to renal PTA, and that the low radioopacity of the stent makes placement difficult in obese patients, particularly for ostial lesions. Expand
Aortoiliac insufficiency: long-term experience with stent placement for treatment.
Findings from long-term experience with aortoiliac stent placement for treatment of chronic lower-extremity ischemia confirmed the procedure to be a durable, low-risk revascularization option. Expand
Use of Endovascular Stents in Congenital Heart Disease
It is concluded that balloon expandable stents are useful in selected postoperative stenoses in congenital heart disease. Expand
Treatment of atherosclerotic occlusive disease of the aortic bifurcation with balloon expandable tantalum stents
This new type of non-invasive procedure can be regarded a safe and efficous alternative to vascular surgery, especially in poor surgical candidates. Expand
Stenting of the iliac arteries with the palmaz stent: Experience from a multicenter trial
Balloon-expandable, intraluminal stenting of the iliac arteries with the Palmaz stent was the subject of a multicenter study for 4 years and sustained clinical benefit of the treated patients was obtained. Expand
Stent placement in the renal artery: three-year experience with the Palmaz stent.
Stent placement in renal arteries is a useful adjunct to percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty for atherosclerotic renal-artery stenoses and even more long-term patency rates were based on duplex ultrasound. Expand
Primary Stenting of Infrarenal Abdominal Aortic Stenoses: A Report of Seven Cases and Review of the Literature
It is suggested that stenting of focal infrarenal abdominal stenoses is effective and associated with favorable late outcome, and percutaneous stenting as a less invasive treatment alternative is presented. Expand
