Abstract

PAD is a significant cause of both morbidity and death. In spite of TASC II recommendation that surgery is the preferred treatment for femoro-popliteal Type C&D lesions, promising clinical results of percutaneous revascularization had been obtained with a low risk of morbidity and mortality. We present a case of multiple overlapped, overlength self-expanding stent (extend as long as 450mm) placement to treat superficial femoral artery (SFA) chronic subtotal occlusions. No stent fractures or restenoses were observed at 1-year follow-up and with a favourable clinical results. Clinical and research medicine.
