Aim: To determine the feasibility of subintimal angioplasty (SIA), aided by reentry device in iliac artery occlusions. Methods: Forty-eight patients with severe claudication (Fontaine-III, n = 24) or critical limb ischaemia (Fontaine-IV, n = 24) had SIA, aided with a reentry device, for chronic iliac occlusions TASC C (n =28) and D (n = 20). The primary outcome was arterial patency at duplex follow-up. Secondary outcomes were primary failure, postprocedural complications, stent use, late occlusions, and length of hospital stay. Results: The patency rate was 89% at a mean follow-up of 13 (±11) months. There were 2 primary failures, no postprocedural complications, and 5 late occlusions. Almost 80% of patients were ready for discharge within 24 hours. Conclusions: Subintimal angioplasty with a reentry device for long iliac occlusions provides a feasible option with excellent results and short hospital stay. A randomized trial of SIA of iliac occlusion versus open reconstruction is now required.
