Objective:To summarize our experience of treating lower extremity arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO) by endovascular angioplasty combined with traditional operation.Methods:From November 2003 to Jaunary 2006,16 cases of lower extremity ASO with multi-segment lesions underwent bypass vessel transplantation in combination with balloon angioplasty and/or stent implantation.All patients except one (peri-surgical death) had followed-up for 2~26 months. Results: The symptoms were markedly improved due to collateral circulation formation after treatment in 14 patients.There were recurrence of artery obliteration (n=2),obliteration of artificial vessel (n=1) and stricture of stent (n=1).Conclusion:Endovascular angioplasty combined with traditional surgical operation can significantly improve the success rate of surgical procedure,reduce the difficulty and complexity of surgery and surgical complications as well.
