Treatment of an iliac chronic total occlusion (CTO)

Case takeaways

  • The use of the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis is ideal for treatment of iliac total occlusions, particularly when the hypogastric artery is chronically occluded
  • The flexibility of the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis is also well-suited to the non-linear course of the external iliac artery
  • Overall, percutaneous treatment of iliac occlusions with the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis is an excellent alternative to surgical revascularization
