Objective To assess the value of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty(PTA) and stent implantation for the treatment of lower extremity arterial occlusive diseases.Methods Totally 66 patients with ischaemic symptoms and occlusive lesions in iliac,femoral and/or popliteal arteries were treated with PTA and stent implantation.The ankle-brachial index(ABI) was calculated before and after treatment.Results The procedure was successful in 66 patients with 73 stents planted,including 27 stents in common iliac artery,32 stents in superficial femoral artery,and 14 stents in occlusive lesions involving both iliac and femoral.None of serious complications occurred.Limb ischemia signs significantly reduced or disappeared after treatment.ABI pre-and post-operation was 0.39±0.12 and 0.72±0.15,respectively.During the follow-up of 3—24 months(mean follow-up 15 months),10 cases of re-stenosis were re-treated with similar procedures.Conclusion PTA and stent implantation are safe and effective for treating lower extremity arteriosclerotic diseases.
