2 INTRODUCTION Endovascular revascularization of infrarenal aortic and iliac disease- high rate of technical success and with lower morbidity and mortality than open bypass surgery Preferred modality for treatment of patients with Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus Document (TASC) II type A and B lesions Surgical revascularization preferred for patients with TASC type C and D lesions In contemporary practice, surgery is reserved for failure of endovascular approach

3 Modified TASC Morphological Classification (TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus)

4 TASC -Femoral-Popliteal Lesions


6 AortoIliac and Common Femoral Intervention


8 Vessel diameter Vessel Size in mm Infrarenal Aorta 14-20 Common Iliac
8-12 External Iliac 7-10 Common femoral 6-7

9 Recommendation for vascular access of aortoiliac intervention
Location of lesion Vascular access Aortic bifurcation Bilateral retrograde CFA Ostial common iliac Ipsilateral retrograde CFA, brachial artery Common and EIA stenosis Ipsilateral retrograde , contralateral CFA Common and EIA occlusion Ipsilateral+/- contralateral CFA, brachial artery Common femoral Contralateral retrograde CFA Common, EIA,SFA , popliteal


11 This angiogram in the anteroposterior (AP) view shows common, internal, and external iliac arteries. If the external iliac arteries are not well visualized in the AP view, then contralateral views should be used. For example, left external iliac artery is best imaged in the right anterior oblique30. The CFA is imaged by placing a 5F multipurpose catheter in the contralateral side after crossing the contralateral CFA with an angled glide wire. The ostium of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) and the profunda femoris artery are best imaged in the ipsilateral 30 angulation. The middistal SFA and the popliteal are best visualized in the AP view. The tibioperoneal vessels are seen well in an ipsilateral 10 angulation, whereas the pedal arch vessels are imaged in the contralateral10 angulations.

12 Vascular Access Relatively disease-free, without signi Ca
Over a bony structure, if possible Angle of entry- 30⁰-45⁰ Obtained with an 18-gauge needle that will accommodate most “ or smaller Wires A smaller 21-gauge needle with a inch wire - “micropuncture kit” (Cook, Bloomington, IN) Used for difficult femoral, brachial, radial, or antegrade femoral approaches


14 Prevent injury to the less diseased extremity
Contralateral femoral retrograde access Retrograde Common Femoral Artery Access Common access site used for peripheral diagnostic angiography and intervention Prevent injury to the less diseased extremity iliac occlusions are best treated from a contralateral approach SFA,PFA- lesions OF CFA/involve SFA/PFA ostium - allows treatment B/L disease with a single arterial puncture

15 Femoropopliteal Artery Intervention
Contralateral femoral retrograde access : Advantage Disadvantage Less subsequent complications including hemorrhage from puncture site Working from a distance with exchange-length wires and balloons Ability to image CFA and its bifurcation Lack of support while traverse of critically narrowed or occluded sites Ability to treat iliac and infrainguinal disease in the same setting Manual of carotid and peripheral vascular Intervention, Thosaphol Limpijankit MD, Beyond Enterprise Thailand 2008;290



18 Required for infrainguinal proced
Antegrade Common Femoral Artery Access Ipsilateral popliteal retrograde access Required for infrainguinal proced Approx 3cm CFA lies betw ligament & FA bifurcation Inorder to access CFA, skin entry- prox to ing ligm Access too close to F bifurc –inadeq working room to selectively cath SFA Useful in SFA occlusion with failure to cross from contralateral or antegrade Ostial SFA/CFA lesions may also be approached via PA in acute angled terminal ao bifurc CI- aneurysms of PA, pathology of popliteal fossa- Baker’s cyst

19 Brachial Artery Access
Pref access for visc arterial [CA, SMA] interventions PC approach at BA can lead to a ↑compli rate UL arts – smaller, prone to spasm A small hematoma- Could lead to brachial plexopathy Itv req >6F sheaths/smaller pt→open approach preferred Left BA access pref over Rt- can avoid carotid origin A micropuncture tech should be used for all PC BA intervention Left brachial approach has approximately 100 mm greater reach than the right brachial approach

20 Estimated distances from FA access


22 Guidewires are used to introduce, position, and exchange catheters
In a standard guide wire, a stainless steel coil surrounds a tapered inner core A central safety wire filament is incorporated to prevent separation in case of fracture 5 charecterstics- size, length, stiffness, coating, and tip configuration Typically they are 100 to 120 cm in length but can also be 260 to 300 cm (good rule of thumb to follow is that the guidewire should be twice the length of the longest catheter being used) Tip of the wires can be straight, angled, or J-shaped Varying degrees of shaft stiffness- extra support,to provide a strong rail to advance catheters in tortuous anatomy vs extremely slick hydrophilic with low friction

23 Wire selection Diameter vary from 0.014“ to 0.038“
Most commonly used size is 0.018“/0.035“ ( upper extremity) and 0.014“/ 0.018“ ( lower extremity) Length between 130 and 300cm Tip configurations are; straight, angled Tip and J shape Varying degrees of shaft stiffness ( e.g. extra support, super stiff wires) allow advancement of stiff devices Hydr-angle tip–Glidewire Can be used for crossing tight lesions and can be advanced independent of a guidewire 038:18g needle, 018:21g needle

24 Guidewire-Lesion Interaction
Floppy portion moving in a linear fashion Floppy portion piles up prox to lesion—no chance to cross- backup,redirect,if straight tip→steerable Floppy tip bent with min R—Cautiously adv wire- once crossed, wire should straighten- advancing a “buckledup” wire- force→embolization Floppy tip “buckledup” —backup,redirect,adv -dissect,embolz,wire damag

25 Guide wire Functions PTA Guide wires PTA Guidewires are designed to:
Track through the vessel Access a lesion Cross a lesion Provide device delivery support Guide wire Functions A guidewire therefore needs to successfully accomplish all of the following: Track through the vessel Steer into or away from side branches Access the lesion Cross the lesion Provide device delivery support

26 Core Material Affects flexibility, support, steering and tracking
Stainless Steel Nitinol (more flexible) High Tensile Strength Stainless Steel

27 Core Diameter Larger core diameter:
increased support for device delivery and vessel straightening good torque Smaller core diameter: for enhanced tracking and flexibility

28 Tip stiffness/Tip-load Core-to-Tip
Increased steerability Increased flexibility Long tapers Increased support Increased Torque Short tapers Force transmission Tactile feedback Tip stiffness/Tip-load Core-to-Tip Tip style Better steering Better shapability Flexibility, softness Ability to prolapse Frontline/Workhorse,floppy Shaping ribbon

50 Catheter An “ideal catheter” should be able to sustain high-pressure injections, to track well, be nonthrombogenic, have good memory, and should torque well

51 Catheter ( diagnostic/ guiding)
Length depends on location for using Sizes are 5 to 8 French a) abdominal aorta = 60 to 80 cm length b) BTK,carotid or subclavian areas 100 to 125cm length Polyethylene- ↓coef friction, pliable Polyurethane- softer, even ↑pliable→ tracks wires better Nylon- stiffer, can tolerate ↑flow rate- amenable to angio Teflon- stiffest- used mainly for dilators & sheaths wire braid in the wall to impart torquibility and strength

52 Guiding Catheter vs Sheath
Operator dept Sheaths are designed with a simple diaphragm or a hemostatic valve, guiding catheters always require hemostatic valves be attached During intervention, the guide catheter or sheath should be placed near the lesion to provide for better visualizationand improved support Flush /Non-Sel Selective CATHETERS

53 Vascular sheaths allow for easy exchange and introduction of catheters and guidewires. They have a hemostatic valve that prevents blood reflux and air embolism. Furthermore, they protect the vessel entry point from intimal injury and should be used whenever multiple guidewire exchanges are anticipated. Sizing of sheaths is based on their internal diameter: a 7 Fr sheath will accept up to a 7 Fr catheter. Sheaths come in multiple lengths. In addition, the side port of the sheath can be used to inject contrast or measure arterial pressure. All sheaths are packaged with dilators. Dilators serve as an obturator for entry of the sheath and also help to progressively enlarge the track once guidewire entry has been established Guiding catheters and sheaths can be used to facilitate passage of a smaller endovascular device through a tortuous curve. They are particularly useful in the renal and carotid system or contralateral iliac system

79 Vessel size The vessel in each territory have their own different size, important to know to choose a proper balloon or stent

80 Balloons

81 Balloons In selecting a balloon, the following criteria should be considered : a) Guidewire ( 0.014“, 0.018“, 0.035“) b) Over the wire (OTW) or monorail system c) Shaft length Balloon shaft lengths are commonly 75 cm or 120 cm, can be coaxial or monorail and designed to be inserted over in., in., or in. wires 0.014“ balloon system is usually for carotid, vertebral, renal, infrapopliteal arteries 0.018“ balloon system also in SFA, infrapopliteal- operator dept 0.035“ balloon system for subclavian, innominate, aortoiliac, superficial femoral artery

82 Circumfer force/tension (T) exerted on wall of an inflatd balln ~P within balln & R (T=P×R)(LAPLACE)
Larger ballns -require ↓P than smaller ballns to generate substantial dilating forces Larger vessels (Ao) require ↓P to dilate & rupture Diameter matching vessel beyond lesion Balloon length should be > lesion Balloon centered on lesion & inflated slowly Inflation maintained for 20s- deflated- reinflated 3 inflations of 20s Patient’s complaint of low back pain during balloon inflation may be a warning sign of adventitial stretch, which may occur before aortic rupture

91 Stents Balloon-expandable Self-expandable Stent graft

92 Balloon-expandable stents
Require positive pressure for expansion Typically rigid with high radial force Size of the balloon-expandable stent equals to the size of the reference vessel diameter Ideal for immobile sites of the body subclavian, renal, mesenteric, iliac arteries and at ostial locations

Balloon-Expandable Cobalt Chromium Stent 0.014” / Rx Dynamic Balloon-Expandable Stainless Steel Stent 0.035” / OTW

Deployed in vessels that are flexible or twist during movement of neck, shoulder or leg Carotid, Axillary, SFA, Popliteal artery Nitinol - metal - provides best flexibility and memory Stent is simply compressed over a stent delivery catheter and covered with a sheath Stent deployment is achieved by pulling back the sheath Stent diameter should be 1-2mm larger than the reference vessel diameter- adequate stent apposition with the vessel wall

96 Self-expandable Stents
Some degree of foreshortening- to be taken into account when choosing More difficult to place with absolute precision Generally comes in longer length than BES Their ability to continually expand after delivery allows them to accommodate adjacent vessels of different size

97 Self-expanding stents are deployed by retracting a restraining sheath and usually consist of Elgiloy (a cobalt, chromium, nickel alloy) or Nitinol (a shape memory alloy composed of nickel and titanium), the latter of which will contract and assume a heat-treated shape above a transition temperature that depends upon the composition of the alloy. Self-expanding stents will expand to a final diameter that is determined by stent geometry, hoop strength, and vessel size

98 BX- vs SX stents for iliac intervention
BX stent SX stent Advantages High radial force Elasticity,flexibility Minimal foreshortening Conformibility Good visibility MRI compatibility absolute precision continually expand – vessel size Disadvantages Risk of edge dissection Need post-dil. Stent crushing Suboptimal radial strength Incomplete stent apposition Foreshortening Artifacts on MRI Non precise Suitable lesions Heavily calcified lesions Non-ostial common lesion Immobile EIA; CFA -mobile Ostial Long lesions

104 Subintimal angioplasty
Hydrophilic wire not passing Carefully adv into subintimal plane- if not spontaneously, gentle inflation of balloon at edge of the plaque Wire traversed the lesion subintimaliy Hydrophilic catheter or other re-entry device passed OTW to guide it back into lumen Standard angioplasty of subintimal plane performed, with stent placement

105 Subintimal angioplasty

106 Femoropopliteal Artery Intervention
Four potential routes of access to the SFA and popliteal: Contralateral femoral retrograde access Ipsilateral femoral antegrade access Ipsilateral popliteal retrograde access Brachial retrograde access Balloon Balloon size and length is matched to the size ( ~5-6mm) and lesion length( ~ mm) of SFA Improved angiographic results may be accomplished with prolonged inflation times ( 3-5 minutes) Dissections are commonly seen after balloon dilation ( due to heavy calcification)

107 Femoropopliteal Artery Intervention
Stent implantion ( always SX-Stents): Sizing the SX- stent ~ 1mm greater than the RVD of SFA Postdilation with mm diameter balloon Popliteal artery -> avoid stent = high risk of stent compression or fracture SX-Stent problems: Stent fracture -especially in stent overlap “ In-Stent-Restenoses“-in long stented segments, multiple stents DEB

111 Infrapopliteal Interv
Knee-to-foot patency of one of the three branches is usually sufficient to prevent critical lower-limb ischemia Claudication is rarely the result of isolated disease of the infrapopliteal arteries Re-stenosis after intervention in these vessels is typically the highest among the lower limb sites Obstructive disease in these arteries is often occlusive, diffuse and complicated by heavy calcific deposits

120 Renal Stents: FDA Status
Cordis Palmaz Balloon Expandable Stents FDA approved for use following sub-optimal PTRA of a de novo or restenotic lesion (< 22 mm in length) located within 10 mm of the aorto-renal artery border and with a reference vessel diameter of > 4mm and < 8mm Medtronic Bridge Extra Support Balloon Expandable Stent System FDA approved for use following sub-optimal PTRA of a de novo (< 15 mm in length) located within 10 mm of the aorto-renal artery border and with a reference vessel diameter of > 5mm and < 7mm Their are two FDA approved stents currently on the market. First, the Cordis Palmaz Stents - the first stent and the stent that remains the gold standard in terms of clinical support and a newcomer the Medtronic Bridge stent. Palmaz® is a trademark of Cordis Corp. Bridge™ is a trademark of Medtronic AVE Inc.

121 Renal artery stenting 1. Catheter or sheath placement 2. Guide wire (0.014“) insertion. Rosen wire has soft curled end- ideal- prevents perforating small renal branch vessels 3.Stent placement -> as soon as the tip reach the lesion GC is pulled back into the Aorta 4.Stent deployment, proximal struts should protrude 1-2mm into the aorta 5. Flaring the ostium of the stent ( optional), opens the way for re-intervention and covers the plaque in the aorta

122 no touch technique, the guide catheter seeks out the ostium with the help of 2 wires

123 Advances in Treatment of Aortoiliac Occlusions

124 Inability to cross an occlusion with a guidewire or to reenter the true lumen beyond the occlusion remains the most common cause for technical failure Front Runner device Crosser catheter Reentry devices

125 The Frontrunner® (Cordis) or Quickcross® catheters are designed to maintain the wire in the center of the lumen and penetrate the plaque and/or thrombus in a controlled fashion Subintimal dissection plane buckling a glide wire the subintimal plane is entered  Following with an angled glide catheter-re-enter the lumen distal to the obstruction This step is the limiting factor  Adjuncts - Outback® or Pioneer® catheter which allow an angled needle to puncture back into the true lumen

126 FRONTRUNNER® XP CTO Catheter (cordis)
Enables controlled crossing of CTOs using blunt microdissection to create a channel through the occlusion to facilitate wire placement. Low profile. Features a crossing profile of .039" with actuating jaws that open to 2.3 mm. Hydrophilic coating along the entire catheter length to facilitate crossing Catheter steerability.- shapeable distal tip + effective torque control enhance maneuverability and catheter steerability No guidewire lumen.Variable support from advancing and retracting the 4.5F Micro Guide Catheter. The crossing profile is in with the jaws closed, reaches a maximum diameter of 2.3 mm with the jaws open, and is available in 90- and 140-cm lengths. The device does not have a guidewire lumen, and once a lesion is crossed, a dedicated MicroGuidecatheter is advanced over the FrontRunner catheter to its tip, andthe catheter is then withdrawn. A guidewire can then be placedthrough the MicroGuide over which further therapies such asballoons and stents may be delivered
