LEA3. Open Distal Revascularization in Chronic Kidney Disease: Is It Worthwhile?

October 31, 2018 - 23:00
The incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has reached pandemic proportions across the world. Occlusive arterial disease causing critical limb ischemia and sepsis in the CKD patient is a huge clinical challenge often culminating in major amputation or mortality. Successful revascularization of these patients is challenging with added limitations due to impaired renal function, difficulties in contrast-enhanced imaging, heavily calcified arteries, and overall comorbid status.

LEA2. Outcomes of Laser Atherectomy in Complex Lesions of the Superficial Femoral Artery

October 31, 2018 - 23:00
The effectiveness of laser atherectomy in the treatment of complex arterial lesions remains poorly defined. The objective of this study was to assess outcomes of superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions treated with laser atherectomy.

LEA1. Pilot Assessment of the Angiosome Concept by Intraoperative Fluorescence Angiography After Tibial Bypass Surgery

October 31, 2018 - 23:00
The angiosome concept as a model for decision-making in revascularization of patients with critical limb ischemia has fallen victim to a lively discussion in recent years. Therefore, the aim of this prospective pilot study was to provide further data on the angiosome concept on the level of microcirculation after tibial bypass surgery by using intraoperative fluorescence angiography.
