The long-term primary patency rates for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and stenting in treatment of disease of the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries have been disappointing. Three-year primary patency rates of approximately 50% have been reported for PTA and first-generation stents. Early results with newer nitinol stents appear promising; however, long-term data are lacking. One- and 2-year primary patency rates of 76% to 97% and 60% to 84%, respectively, have been… CONTINUE READING
