Infrapopliteal angioplasties for limb salvage in diabetic patients: Does the clinical outcome justify its use?
L Dayananda, Srikanth Moorthy, KP Sreekumar, Nirmal Kumar Prabhu, TN Chetan
April-June 2008, 18(2):156-161
Purpose: To analyze the results of infrapopliteal percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) as a primary treatment modality in diabetic patients with non- healing ulcers or gangrene. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively studied 35 angioplasties, performed as the first line of treatment to salvage diabetic feet. The patients were followed up for 12 months. Results: Grade 1 and 2 ulcers were seen in only 20% of patients (5.71 and 14.28%, respectively); 37.14% of patients had grade 3 ulcer, and 42.8% were in the gangrene stage (grade 4 - 34.2% and grade 5 - 8.5%). A total of 77 lesions in 46 arteries (including six popliteal and suprapopliteal lesions) were dilated in 35 limbs. Of the 71 infrapopliteal lesions, 86% of lesions were classified as group C or D (group A - 9.3%, group B - 4.65%, group C - 37.2%, and group D - 48.83%). Overall technical success rate was 84.7%. The vascular complication rate was 26% (12 arteries out of 46). Clinical success was achieved in 29.1% of cases at the end of 6 months and 58.6% at the end of one year. Limb salvage rates were 79.4% at the end of 6 months and 75.8% at the end of one year. Conclusions: A high technical success rate can be achieved even in situations traditionally considered unfavorable for angioplasty. Infrapopliteal angioplasty can produce limb salvage rates comparable to bypass surgery in diabetic patients with extensive disease.

How I do it: Radiofrequency ablation
Roy Santosham, Bhawna Dev, Preeti Priyadarshini, Harsha Chadga, C Anupama, Rajiv Santosham, Rajan Santosham, S Vishnu
April-June 2008, 18(2):166-170
Over the past decade, image-guided tumor ablation using thermal energy has emerged as a promising technique for treating focal, primary or secondary, nonoperable tumors. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is minimally invasive and requires less resources, time, and recovery period and is, moreover, relatively inexpensive. RFA has been used to treat tumors located in the liver, lung, bone, kidneys, brain, thyroid, breast, and pancreas. This article will describe how to choose an appropriate case; precisely place the needle into the tumor; the precautions to be taken before, during, and after the procedure; probable complications; and the follow-up of patients undergoing ablation.

Endovascular management in venous disease
John D'Souza, Abhay K Kapoor, VS Bedi
April-June 2008, 18(2):162-165
Background: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are under-recognized entities and can be often difficult to diagnose. Occasionally, clinical symptoms, such as pain and swelling, are non-specific or absent. If left untreated, the thrombus can get dislodged and migrate to cause life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Materials and Methods: Twenty patients presenting with limb edema and local increase in temperature were screened with color Doppler. Of the 20 cases, three were treated for upper limb venous disease and 17 were treated for lower limb disease. Cases detected to be positive for DVT were taken up for diagnostic venography using DSA. On confirmation, these patients were offered endovascular management viz. percutaneous recanalization by thromboaspiration or thrombolysis or a combination of both. Patients with residual stenosis or vessel occlusion were treated with balloon angioplasty/stent placement. The patients were assessed with a color Doppler study at 6, 12, 24, and 36 months. Results: Of the 20 cases, four patients underwent thromboaspiration, eight underwent thrombolysis, eight were treated with angioplasty, and seven patients required stent placement. Technical success was achieved in 95% (19 of 20) of the cases treated with thrombolysis and/or venous stent placement. One patient had complete occlusion of the vein preventing passage of catheter and thromboaspiration. Three patients were treated for upper limb disease and on follow-up studies, all three remained patent while of the 16 patients treated for lower limb disease, 13 remained patent giving a success rate of 81.25%. No complications occurred in any of the patients. Two patients developed a stent thrombus at 48 and 72 h respectively, both of which were recanalized by balloon angioplasty. Conclusions: In venous thrombosis, color Doppler helps in the detection and morphological analysis of disease, while venography confirms and assists in managing venous thrombosis using interventions. Endovascular interventional management includes percutaneous recanalization by thromboaspiration or thrombolysis or a combination of both. Patients with residual stenosis or vessel occlusion vessel can be further treated with balloon angioplasty/stent placement.

Review: Interventional radiology in peripheral vascular disease
Mathew P Cherian, Pankaj Mehta, Tejas M Kalyanpur, Prashanth Gupta
April-June 2008, 18(2):150-155
Peripheral vascular diseases (PVD) are referred to as diseases affecting the blood vessels other than the heart and the brain. Interventional endovascular treatment whenever feasible has become the first line of management in the treatment of PVD. Interventions may be aimed at either revascularization or deliberate occlusion of a diseased vessel(s). This article reviews the various peripheral vascular diseases with their appropriate endovascular management.
