We present the midterm clinical outcomes and predictors of balloon angioplasty and stent placement in atherosclerotic femoropopliteal (FP) arterial disease. Between January 2002 and August 2006, 155 patients (men = 56%; 71.4 ± 10.5 years) underwent 171 FP angioplasty or stent for claudication (n = 82, 54%) or critical limb ischemia ([CLI] n = 70, 46%). Follow-up was obtained through September 30, 2009. The average follow-up was 3.25 ± 1.73 years. In claudicants versus CLI, the 12-month patency for TransAtlantic InterSociety Consensus II (TASC II) classification (TASC A/B) was 93% versus 80%, respectively, and TASC C/D 83% versus 80%. At 3 years, TASC A/B was 82% versus 80%, respectively, and TASC C/D was 56% versus 80%, respectively. The predictor of clinical failure in claudicants was chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) and in CLI, the predictor of amputation was hyperlipidemia.
