Treating Chronic Total Occlusion in Proximal Popliteal Artery
- 70-year-old male with short segment occlusion of the proximal left popliteal artery
- Relevant history:
- short distance left lower extremity claudication
- Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) left post exercise 0.38
- Angiogram: Occluded left popliteal. There is diseased posterior tibial runoff to the left foot
- High flexion anatomical area calls for an extremely fracture resistant, yet conformable solution
- Mag up prior deployment and use DSA imaging to see the device
- RO markers on the catheter identify the ends of the stent. They are a highly-accurate indicator of the stent's final position
- Successful recanalization of popliteal with a 6 mm x 40 mm GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent
Dr. Corey Teigen case procedure. Flagstaff, AZ: W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc; 2017. [Case Study]
GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent demonstrated the lowest straightening force of the ten different stents tested, making it ideal in high-flexion applications.*
