Objective: To evaluate the results of endovascular intervention therapy in Below-The-Knee (BTK) arterial disease.
Methods: Retrospective descriptive series of cases. We had researched from January 2015 to December 2015 at Vascular Surgery department in Cho Ray hospital.
Results: The study sample of 09 patients. We had counted 55.6% female rates, average ages 74.56 ± 9.7. Chief complain symptom was a painfully, 66.6% sample. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) performed by 77.8%, PTA and stent replacement combination accounted for 22.2%. BTK intervention simple accounted for 66.7%, other combination was 33.3%. The procedure times had 161 ± 38.7 minutes. The time of hospitalization average was 6 ± 1.85 days. Thrombosis artery complications had got into 11.1%, hematoma had got 11.1% and mortality rate had got 1 case in our research. Technique and short-term results success rates were 88.9% and 88.9%, respectively.
Conclusions: The intervention endovascular therapy of chronic arterial occlusion of the lower extremity less invasive method which is safe, effective, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery of patients. Results of short-term achieve a high success rate.
