vascular access
Vascular Access
  • Relatively disease-free, without signi Ca
  • Over a bony structure, if possible
  • Angle of entry- 30⁰-45⁰
  • If access vessel-small/potentially diseased- micropuncture tech preferred
vascular access sites
Vascular Access sites

Retrograde Common Femoral Artery Access

  • Common access site used for peripheral diagnostic angiography and intervention
  • Prevent injury to the less diseased extremity
vascular access sites1
Vascular access sites
  • Contralateral femoral retrograde access :
  • Internal iliac stenoses are best treated from a contralateral approach
  • SFA,PFA- lesions located within the CFA/involve SFA/PFA ostium -
  • Proximity to arterial puncture site, Bifurcation anatomy of CFA
  • Also allows treatment B/L disease with a single arterial puncture
vascular access site
Vascular Access site

Antegrade Common Femoral Artery Access:

  • Required for infrainguinal proced
  • Approx 3cm CFA lies betw ligament & FA bifurcation
  • Inorder to access CFA, skin entry- prox to ing ligm
  • Access too close to F bifurc –inadeq working room to selectively cath SFA
vascular access sites2
Vascular access sites
  • Ipsilateral popliteal retrograde access:
  • Useful in SFA occlusion with failure to cross from contralateral or antegrade
  • Ostial SFA/CFA lesions may also be approached via PA in acute angled terminal aobifurc
  • CI- aneurysms of PA, pathology of poplitealfossa- Baker’s cyst
brachial artery access
Brachial Artery Access
  • Pref access for visc arterial [CA, SMA] interventions
  • PC approach at BA can lead to a ↑compli rate
    • UL arts – smaller, prone to spasm
    • A small hematoma- Could lead to brachial plexopathy
  • Itvreq >6F sheaths/smaller pt→open approach preferred
  • Left BA access pref over Rt- can avoid carotid origin
  • A micropuncture tech should be used for all PC BA intervention
wire selection
Wire selection
  • Many-Teflon/silicone :Some- hydrophilic
  • Hydr-stenosd/torturous+angle tip–Glidewire
    • Can be used for crossing tight lesions and can be advanced independent of a guidewire
  • 014,018,025,035,038-for initial access, 038:18g needle, 018:21g needle
guidewire lesion interaction
Guidewire-Lesion Interaction
  • Floppy portion moving in a linear
  • Floppy portion piles up prox to lesion—no chance to cross- backup,redirect,if straight tip→steerable
  • Floppy tip bent with min R—Cautiously adv wire- once crossed, wire should straighten- advancing a “buckledup” wire- force→embolization
  • Floppy tip “buckledup” with R—backup,redirect,adv -dissect,embolz,wiredamag
catheter diagnostic guiding
Catheter ( diagnostic/ guiding)

Length depends on location for using

a) abdominal aorta = 60 to 80 cm length

b) BTK,carotid or subclavian areas 100 to 125cm length

Polyethylene- ↓coef friction, pliable

Polyurethane- softer, even ↑pliable→ tracks wires better

Nylon- stiffer, can tolerate ↑flow rate- amenable to angio

Teflon- stiffest- used mainly for dilators & sheaths

sos omni selective catheter
SOS Omni selective catheter
  • Soft, atraumatic, Super-radiopaque tip
  • Reforming in descthoracic aorta – below great vessels rather than transverse arch –safety
  • The catheter should be pulled from the descaointo abdaowith a floppy guidewire“leading,” sometimes with a rotating motion
  • The soft, flexible atraumatic tip can be placed deeper into the artery (>1 cm), ↓chance of “catheter kickout.”
  • The shaped tip allows the guidewire to flick into the origin of the RA
omni flush angiographic catheter
Omni Flush Angiographic Catheter
  • Designed as a single catheter to perform flush aortography, B/L“runoff” studies of lower extremities and to cross aobifurcation with ease for C/L diagnostics in interventional procedures.
  • Super-Radiopaque tip
  • Reforms and maintains shape—even under injection pressure—with less catheter whipping, resulting in less vessel wall injury
  • Less contrast reflux than other flush catheters, thus resulting in lower total contrast dose

guiding catheter vs sheath
Guiding Catheter vs Sheath
  • The use of a guide or sheath is determined by operator bias
  • Sheaths are designed with a simple diaphragm or a hemostatic valve, guiding catheters always require hemostatic valves be attached
  • During intervention, the guide catheter or sheath should be placed near the lesion to provide for better visualization and improved support
  • In selecting a balloon, the following criteria should be considered:

a) Guidewire ( 0.014“, 0.018“, 0.035“)

b) over the wire (OTW) or monorail system

c) shaft length

  • 0.014“ balloon system is usually for carotid, vertebral, renal, infrapopliteal arteries
  • 0.035“ balloon system for subclavian, innominate, aortoiliac, superficial femoral artery
  • 0.018“ balloon system also in SFA, infrapopliteal, depends on what the operator prefers
law of laplace
Law of Laplace
  • Circumfer force/tension (T) exerted on wall of an inflatdballn ~P within balln & R (T=P×R)
  • Balln twice R of a smaller balln- twice wall T for given inflation P→D kept constant, T on wall of ballnwill ↑linearly with ↑inflatn P
  • Larger ballns -require ↓P than smaller ballnsto generate substantial dilating forces
  • Larger vessels (Ao) require ↓P to dilate & rupture

Balloon cath with a D matchngoutflow vessel beyond lesion

  • Balloon length should be > lesion
  • Balloon centered on lesion & inflated slowly
  • Inflation maintained for 20s- deflated- reinflated 3 inflations of 20s
subintimal angioplasty
Subintimal angioplasty
  • Hydrophilic wire not passng
  • Carefully adv into subintimal plane- if not spontaneously, gentle inflation of balloon at edge of the plaque
  • Wire traversed the lesion subintimaliy
  • Hydrophilic catheter or other re-entry device passed OTW to guide it back into lumen
  • Standard angioplasty of subintimal plane performed, with stent placement
  • The types of stent used in peripheral interventions:
  • Balloon-expandable
  • Self-expandable
  • Stent graft
balloon expandable stents
Balloon-expandable stents
  • Require positive pressure for expansion
  • Typically rigid with high radial force
  • Size of the balloon-expandable stent equals to the size of the reference vessel diameter
  • Ideal for immobile parts of the body-ie, subclavian, renal, mesenteric, iliac arteries and at ostial locations
self expandable stents
Self-expandable Stents
  • Deployed in vessels that are flexible or twist during movement of neck, shoulder or leg
    • carotid, axillary, superficial femoral artery, popliteal artery
  • Nitinol - best flexibility and memory
  • Stent compressed over a delivery cath & covered with sheath
  • Stent deployment achieved by pulling back the sheath
  • Stent diameter should be 1-2mm > ref vessel D→ adeq stent apposition
self expandable stents1
Self-expandable Stents
  • Some degree of foreshortening- to be taken into account when choosing
  • More difficult to place with absolute precision
  • Generally comes in longer length than BES
  • Their ability to continually expand after delivery allows them to accommodate adjacent vessels of different size

Demonstrating the Nitinol self-expandable stent deployment

stent grafts
Stent Grafts
  • Used to exclude aneurysm, treat perforations when prolonged balloon inflation failed
  • Wallgraft and Viabahn are two options
decision between se or be stents in iliac lesions
Decision between SE or BE stents in Iliac Lesions
  • Balloon expandable
    • Aortoiliac bifurcation
    • Common iliac
    • Calcified lesions
    • Chronic occlusions (?)
  • Self expanding
    • Vessels flexible/twist during movement
    • Tortuous vessels
    • Distal external iliac artery
    • Contralateral approach
    • Long diffuse lesions
    • Aortoiliac bifurcation (long lesions)

Retrograde Iliac stent placement


Cross-over technique


A patient’s complaint of low back pain during balloon inflation may be a warning sign of adventitial stretch, which may occur before aortic rupture

femoropopliteal artery intervention1
Femoropopliteal Artery Intervention
  • Balloon size & length matched to the size ( ~5-6mm) & lesion length( ~40- 300mm) of SFA
  • ↑ angiographic results may be accomplished with prolonged inflation times ( 3-5 minutes)
  • Dissections are commonly seen after balloon dilation ( due to heavy calcification)
femoropopliteal artery intervention2
Femoropopliteal Artery Intervention

Stentimplantion ( always SX-Stents):

  • Sizing the SX- stent ~ 1mm > SFA
  • Postdilation with 5.0-6.0 mm diameter balloon
  • Popliteal artery -> avoid stent = high risk of stent compression or fracture
infrapopliteal interv
Infrapopliteal Interv
  • Knee-to-foot patency of one of the three branches is usually sufficient to prevent critical lower-limb ischemia
  • Claudication is rarely the result of isolated disease of the infrapoplitealarteries
  • Re-stenosis after intervention in these vessels is typically the highest among the lower limb sites
  • Obstructive disease in these arteries is often occlusive, diffuse and complicated by heavy calcific deposits
infrapopliteal interv wire selection
Infrapopliteal Interv- wire selection
  • Only atraumatic 0.014“ / 0.018“ guide wires should be used-0.014“ prefered due to vessel diameter
  • Type selection ( floppy, medium,stiff) will be driven by the type of disease
infrapopliteal balloon angioplasty
Infrapopliteal -Balloon Angioplasty
  • Low profile balloon with high pushability and trackability to easy cross the lesion
  • Flexibility in small collateral branches
  • 0.014”/ 0.018" wire compatibility
  • Diameter 1.5mm-4.0mm
  • Long (20-210 mm) to reduce procedure times and dissection

Infrapopliteal- Balloon Angioplasty

Long balloons (210mm/ tapered)

  • Reducedriskofdissections
  • ( noballoonoverlap)
          • Total intervention /revascularization
          • time significantly shorter
          • Reduced X-ray dose for patients, operators
          • as well as for the assistants
renal artery stenosis
Renal artery stenosis
  • Usually occurs in the proximal 2 cm
  • ~75% of lesions are caused by atherosclerosis
  • Lesions can be single or multiple, unilateral or bilateral (~25%)
  • Diameter: 6.0-6.5mm for men
  • 5.5-6.0mm for women
  • Length 3-7 cm

reanal artery stenting
Reanal artery stenting

1. Catheter or sheath placement

2. Guide wire (0.014“) insertion. Rosen wire has soft curled end- ideal- prevents perforating small renal branch vessels

3.Stent placement -> as soon as the tip reach the lesion GC is pulled back into the Aorta

4.Stent deployment, proximal struts should protrude 1-2mm into the aorta

5. Flaring the ostium of the stent ( optional), opens the way for re-intervention and covers the plaque in the aorta

subclavian pta

  • Total occlusions- combined approach
  • Usually pre-dilated with a slightly undersized balloon
  • BES sized 1:1 with ref D
  • Ao-ostiallesions - stent protrude (1–2mm) into Ao
  • BES - Ao-ostial locations
