Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a three-year-old girl exhibiting severe long-segment stenoses and occlusions with diffuse arterial involvement of the upper and lower extremities on the right side. The obstructive lesions, which caused atrophy of the right limb and chronic ulceration of the foot, were treated successfully with repeated percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. Obstructive peripheral arterial disease can cause growth retardation of the involved extremity, which can be salvaged by repeated endovascular therapy even in a small growing child.
