BACKGROUND Traditionally, aortobifemoral bypass has been the intervention of choice for iliac artery chronic total occlusions (CTOs). However, it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, limiting its use in high-risk patients. To reduce procedural risk, subintimal angioplasty (SIA) for femoropopliteal CTO has been utilized by many, but few have extended this endovascular technique to treating iliac artery CTOs. We present our experience with 101 successful SIAs for iliac artery… CONTINUE READING
