Below the knee - Critical Limb Ischaemia (CLI)

Find all the latest content on below the knee peripheral interventions published on this website.

There are a variety of symptoms characterising lower limb ischaemia differentiating intermittent claudication (IC) from critical limb ischaemia (CLI). These different conditions can impact disease progression and treatment with CLI associated with increased rates of morbidity and mortality and amputation. The use of imaging, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, stents, devices and techniques as well as understanding vascular access and bleeding complications are critical and can be found here…

New ESC/ESVS Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD)

06 Sep 2017

The new joint ESC/ESVS guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD) have been profoundly updated thanks to the active collaboration between the European Society of Cardiology and the European Society for Vascular Surgery. In this document, the term ‘peripheral arterial diseases’ encompasses all arterial diseases other than coronary arteries and the aorta. In particular, the document addresses only PADs secondary to atherosclerosis, with a few exceptions in specific areas where nonatherosclerotic diseases are a frequent differential diagnosis (e.g. fibromuscular dysplasia in renal arteries) .

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Peripheral Interventions

20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Atherosclerosis might be the same disease wherever it is found, our endovascular procedures may be similar, but the target organs are different – what do you need to know?  Join M. Roffi and P. Musialek as they look at endovascular treatments in the common femoral artery, the role of drug-eluting balloons, reconstruction of an abdominal aortic aneurysm or complex aortoiliac endovascular repair and carotid artery stenting with the new generation of distal protection devices...
