Case 490

PTA of pedal artery

Author(s)
D.Vorwerk
 
Patient
male, 54 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Multiple stenoses of dorsal pedal artery

    DSA shows multiple stenosis of the distal anterior tibial and proximal dorsal pedal artery

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Multiple stenoses of dorsal pedal artery;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    PTA of the foot artery
     

    An 0.018 in platinum tipped stiff guidewire passing through the stenoses

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: PTA of the foot artery;

    A 2 mm balloon catheter inflated into the pedal artery

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: PTA of the foot artery;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Result of PTA
     

    Selective DSA of the anterior tibial artery shows successful recanalization of the dorsal pedal artery

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Result of PTA;

    After PTA the pedal arch is rstored. Note very small arterial diameter due to diabetic arteriopathy
