OBJECTIVE: To compare the results of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and bypass graft surgery (BGS) for the treatment of infrapopliteal lesions in individuals presenting with critical limb ischemia (CLI).
METHOD: A total of 48 infrapopliteal PTAs and 50 infrapopliteal BGS were compared retrospectively. All grafts used nonreversed saphenous vein in a single length as a substitute.
RESULTS: Secondary patency and limb salvage rates in 24 months for the surgical group were 64.7% and 73.2%, respectively. For PTA group, these values were 63.7% and 68.2%, without differences between groups (log rank; P = .45 and .39, respectively). Bypass graft surgery presented better results of secondary patency (72.9% vs 57.1%) and limb salvage (83.5% vs 53.6%) than PTA for patients with Transatlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) D lesions (P = .04 and P = .01, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: Both BGS and PTA provided similar results of patency and limb salvage for individuals with infrapopliteal atherosclerotic disease presenting with CLI. Bypass graft surgery had better results than PTA when TASC D lesions were present.
