Endoluminal bypass shows promise for PAD

Endoluminal bypass shows promise for PAD
November 21, 2017

In a small randomized controlled study, endoluminal bypass with heparin-bonded covered stents demonstrated several advantages over conventional femoropopliteal surgery in patients with long occlusive lesions in the superficial femoral artery.

At 30 days after the procedure, patients who underwent endoluminal bypass vs. surgery had fewer complications (25 vs. 61; P = .048) and shorter hospital stay (3.7 days vs. 6 days; P = .002), as well as no significant differences between groups in the number of serious adverse events.
