Seeing the Promise of Drug-Eluting Stents for Critical Limb Ischemia

Interventional radiologists are helping peripheral arterial disease (PAD) patients with critical limb ischemia avoid amputation by exploring the treatment of the smaller blood vessels below the knee (typically difficult to treat because of their size) with drug-coated stents. Promising three-year data from a double-arm prospective registry will be presented.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Recommending Treatment for "Silent Killer"

Abdominal aortic aneurysms can be treated successfully by a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates the need to undergo a large abdominal incision from surgery or to clamp the aorta, the main artery from the heart. The durability and effectiveness of minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair--over an eight-year period and with nearly 500 patients--will be examined.

Chronic Kidney Disease/Dialysis Access

Finding that Age Doesn't Matter: AV Fistulas and Dialysis

Is there a difference in how arteriovenous (AV) fistulas--vascular accesses needed for dialysis treatment--respond in younger and older patients? The results of a comparison study provide information on how interventional radiologists maintain access to chronic kidney disease patients' circulatory systems to provide life-sustaining dialysis--based on one's age.
