BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive value of clinical classification schemes that assess primary patency after self-expandable nitinol stent in the superficial femoral artery (SFA). METHODS This study was a multicenter retrospective study of prospective databases. From April 2004 to December 2009, 1001 limbs (807 patients) that underwent successful nitinol stent implantation for de novo SFA lesions were identified and analyzed. Primary patency was defined as… CONTINUE READING
