The purpose of this report is to review our recent experience with the combined use of iliac artery angioplasty and infrainguinal surgical revascularization for the treatment of multilevel atherosclerotic disease. A retrospective review of all patients with multilevel atherosclerotic disease who were treated with both iliac artery angioplasty and infrainguinal bypass surgery during a 4-year period was performed. The medical records and preoperative arteriograms of all patients were reviewed for demographic information, radiologic findings, and postoperative follow-up data. Ninety-three limbs in 87 patients were studied. There were 57 male and 30 female patients with an average age of 67.2 years (range: 38-90). We concluded that the combined use of iliac artery angioplasty and infrainguinal surgical revascularization is an effective and durable means of treating multilevel atherosclerotic disease.
