Abstract

By means of a reinforced balloon catheter, percutaneous transluminal dilatation was used to treat 48 consecutive cases of atheromatous iliac artery narrowing. With no deaths and little increase in the time and risk of diagnostic arteriography, the procedure was successful in more than 80% of cases, giving immediate luminal enlargement and relief, as judged clinically, for up to six years, the maximum follow-up period. In properly selected patients, this technique should be used in preference to reconstructive vascular surgery.
