[Percutaneous procedures for the repair of iatrogenic occlusion or stenosis of peripheral vessels in children--report of 5 cases].

Abstract

Invasive percutaneous diagnostic or therapeutic procedures are associated with the risk of thrombosis and occlusion of peripheral vessels which are used for vascular access. Data on the transcatheter therapy of vascular complications in children are scarce. We described five children in four of whom percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty of occluded peripheral vessels was successfully performed. Technical aspects of this treatment and indications are discussed.
