Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In 23 patients, percutaneous atherectomy was performed with an endomyocardial biopsy device in 27 eccentric stenoses of lower limb arteries. The mean percentage stenosis was reduced from 82% to 14% (P: <.001). Histopathologic examination revealed no media or adventitial tissue in the extracted particles. The technical success and complication rates were similar to those reported for conventional percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of short symmetric lesions.
