Retrograde Access for Treating Below-the-Ankle Arterial Disease in CLI

Craig Walker, MD

Patients with critical limb ischemia who have obstructions in the foot have among the poorest prognosis. Retrograde access can help revascularize the foot and save limbs.

Retrograde Pedal Approach for Below-the-Ankle Revascularization in Patients With Critical Limb Ischemia

Luis Mariano Palena, MD; Marco Manzi, MD, From the Interventional Radiology Unit, Foot and Ankle Clinic, Policlinico Abano Terme, Abano Terme Padova, Italy.

Below-the-knee and below-the-ankle revascularization can be unsuccessful in 20% of cases, highlighting the need for more refined technique. The authors present a comprehensive overview of retrograde access for critical limb ischemia involving the foot.

ABSTRACT: There is a growing prevalence of critical limb ischemia (CLI) with resulting complex patterns of tibial occlusive disease that represent unique challenges for interventionalists. Because patients with CLI have substantial comorbidity, endovascular therapy has emerged as the primary therapy in many cases, requiring novel and advanced techniques to achieve technical and clinical success. continue reading
