Below the knee - Critical Limb Ischaemia (CLI)

Here you will find all the latest content on below the knee peripheral interventions published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

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…

Revascularisation techniques in critical limb ischaemia

What is at the centre of critical limb ischaemia? M. Haude and T. Zeller discuss the nature of this disease and look at the strategic approaches used during its treatment which allow for access to the lesion. Delving further, they discuss the pathological similarities - and differences - between the peripheral vessels involved and the coronary arteries. What are our unmet needs today in this speciality and what are the dedicated devices whose special characteristics make them useful.

EuroPCR 2016 Highlights: Peripheral Interventions

From EuroPCR 2016

Is this the year of carotid artery stenting in stroke prevention? Find out the answer as A. Sauguet and A. Cremonesi discuss the highlights of this increasingly mature and innovative EuroPCR track. Other questions touch on whether a fully percutaneous approach to the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms is feasible, or where we stand today on interventional treatments at the femoral-popliteal or below-the-knee level.
