Objectives: There are limited data available evaluating longitudinal outcomes after tibioperoneal angioplasty (TA) alone compared to adjunctive tibial procedures including stenting and atherectomy.Methods: Using the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services inpatient claims (2005-2007), patients evaluated TA only, TA plus stent placement (TA + S), and TA plus atherectomy (TA + A).Results: A total of 2080 patients with critical limb ischemia underwent percutaneous tibioperoneal intervention for the indication of ulceration. Procedures included TA (56.3%), TA + S (16.2%), and TA + A (27.5%). Rates of amputation were not statistically different between the groups at 30, 90, and 365 days after the intervention. Mean total hospital charges were TA ($35 867), TA + A ($41 698; P = .0004), and TA + S ($51 040; P < .0001).Conclusion: Patients undergoing TA alone compared to concomitant stenting or atherectomy for ulceration demonstrated no improvement in limb salvage. Future analysis of adjunctive tibioperoneal interventions is essential to temper cost, as they fail to improve long-term limb salvage.
