BACKGROUND Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is common among patients on chronic dialysis. Despite severe clinical manifestations, the indication for bypass surgery is controversial, because of the high morbidity and mortality rate of these patients. The less invasive percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a possible alternative, but data about PTA in dialysis patients are scarce. METHODS We followed 107 dialysis patients (mean age 67+/-10, 75 males) with 132 ischaemic limbs (97% with… CONTINUE READING
