Abstract

Cutting balloon PTA proved feasible for treatment of resistant peripheral arterial bypass graft stenosis, commonly caused by neointimal hyperplasia, with excellent technical success. Short-term patency with this technique appears to be superior to that with conventional PTA, and it compares well with patency of atherectomy for salvage of infrainguinal bypass grafts.
