PURPOSE: To demonstrate the value of a Reentry-Catheter for true lumen access after subintimal revascularization of chronic iliac artery occlusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Subintimal revascularization was performed in 5 patients (mean age: 67 ± 12 years; female: 3, male: 2) with total iliac artery occlusion (TASC B to D), but without gaining access to the true lumen distal to the occlusion. Subsequently, a Reentry-Catheter was used to establish reentry and a new subintimal tract. Patients were followed up after 6, 12 and 24 months for clinical re-evaluation to determine the Rutherford score and the ankle brachial index (ABI). In addition, duplex ultrasound was performed to evaluate vessel patency. RESULTS: The primary technical success rate was 100 %. In all cases angioplasty was followed by stent placement to establish the subintimal tract. The mean Rutherford score decreased from 3.6 ± 0.9 to 0.33 ± 0.57 after 24 months, while the ABI increased from 0.67 ± 0.06 to 1.2 ± 0. Vessel patency was observed in all patients available for follow-up examinations. CONCLUSION: The Reentry-Catheter reliably allowed access to the true lumen after subintimal revascularization of occluded iliac arteries. Results in this small patient cohort showed a significant reduction in the Rutherford score, increase in the ABI, and a good patency rate after two years.
