Thalhammer, C; Joerg, G R; Roffi, M; Husmann, M; Pfammatter, T; Amann-Vesti, B R (2010). Endovascular treatment of Angio-Seal-related limb ischemia - Primary results and long-term follow-up. Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 75(6):823-827.

Abstract

Objectives: To investigate primary success rates and long term follow-up of endovascular treatment of AngioSeal-related limb ischemia. Background: Current knowledge on optimal therapy of ischemic complications following application of AngioSeal is limited. Methods: A single-center prospectively maintained database was retrospectively interrogated and AngioSeal-related complications requiring endovascular treatment over an 8-year-time period was identified. Results: Fifteen patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria were identified, resulting in an approximated incidence of 0.26% of all devices implanted at our institution. In all cases, the complication was managed successfully in the absence of complications. Eleven patients were treated with balloon angioplasty (PTA) and four with stent implantation because of suboptimal PTA results. Twelve patients were available for noninvasive vascular follow-up examination for a median time of 40 months postinterventionally. Only two patients needed a second intervention consisting of balloon angioplasty due to symptomatic restenosis. At final follow-up all patients were asymptomatic with no relevant restenosis. Conclusion: Endovascular treatment for AngioSeal-related limb ischemia with or without stent implantation results in an excellent immediate and long-term clinical and hemodynamic outcome.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
