  • INTRODUCTION Kissing balloon technique with two low-profile catheters (KBT) could be the treatment of choice for diseased infrapopliteal artery bifurcation in critical limb ischemia (CLI). REPORT From April to December 2006, 8 patients with CLI and tibial artery disease located in the infrapopliteal bifurcation were treated with KBT. Technical success was achieved in all patients without major or minor complications. DISCUSSION Angioplasty of the bifurcation of the popliteal and tibio… CONTINUE READING
