Fellows Case #2: Keep Me in The Loop! A Case Series of Critical Limb Ischemia Treated With Isolated Pedal Loop Angioplasty Joseph DeMarco, DO Morristown Medical Center Morristown, New Jersey Joseph DeMarco, DO Introduction Below-the-ankle revascularization is of great importance in the contemporary treatment of critical limb ischemia (CLI) patients. To date, studies have focused on below-the-knee revascularization. Isolated below-the-ankle revascularization has not been independently studied. We will present a series of 14 cases between 2013-2015 from our institution in which below-the-ankle lesions were identified and treated using angioplasty without additional concurrent infrapopliteal or femoropopliteal intervention. Joseph DeMarco, DO Case Study Demographics A retrospective analysis of Rutherford Categories V/VI patients who underwent below-the-knee (BTK) angioplasty between 2013 and 2015 was performed. 203 total patients identified.

14 patients (7%) only required isolated below-the-ankle (BTA) intervention with percutaneous intraluminal angioplasty (PTA). n = 14, M:F 10:4 Average age (Range) = 60.6 years (30-89) Cardiovascular risk factors: 71% DM (n = 10) 79% HTN (n = 11) 29% CKD (n = 4) 14% Smoker (n = 2) Joseph DeMarco, DO Index Case 58-y/o male with PMH of insulin-dependent DM, hyperlipidemia, and CAD s/p coronary angioplasty six years ago presents initially with a slow healing ulcer between 4th and 5th toes. Patient denies rest pain or claudication at that time. 3 weeks later, patient returns with worsening pain, edema, and worsening ulceration. Joseph DeMarco, DO Pertinent Physical Exam Findings Femoral and popliteal pulses are palpable bilaterally. Strongly palpable dorsalis pedis and weakly palpable posterior tibial artery pulse. Worsening edema. Ulcer between the left fourth and fifth digits on the left foot is enlarging, with active foul smelling exudate. Transcutaneous Oxygen Perfusion

Marginal Dorsal foot perfusion 37mmHg at rest and 41mmHg when elevated Adequate Plantar perfusion >100mmHg Joseph DeMarco, DO Pre-Intervention Angiograms PT, DP, and peroneal patent. Lateral plantar artery small in caliber. Plantar pedal loop incomplete Joseph DeMarco, DO Intervention Posterior tibial, lateral plantar artery and plantar pedal loop cannulated with 2.6F microcatheter and 0.014 Glidewire Advantage (Terumo, Somerset, New Jersey USA). 2.5mm angioplasty performed. Joseph DeMarco, DO Post-Intervention Angiogram Markedly increased lumen and flow rate in the posterior tibial artery and lateral plantar artery. Restored patency of a complete plantar pedal loop.

Below-the-ankle angioplasty has been previously described as a potential adjunct treatment to proximal angioplasty. However, our study demonstrates that isolated below-the-ankle stenosis/occlusion can be a potential source of CLI. Therefore, three-vessel run off cannot be used as the sole

determinate of adequate perfusion for healing. Rather, it is important to identify: Anatomic variations in pedal arterial supply Pedal arch integrity Hallux and calcaneus as watershed regions Joseph DeMarco, DO Conclusions Below-the-ankle revascularization with PTA is technically feasible and associated with clinical improvement. Improvement in primary wound healing and post-amputation healing. Real-time angiographic analysis rather than the angiosome model should be used to assess below-the-ankle microvasculature and determine the revascularization target. An intact pedal arch has been associated with improved wound healing and higher patency rates. Close clinical follow up is necessary focusing on wound healing and pain improvement instead of repeat imaging. Follow up Doppler US is not necessary or accurate in evaluating healing caused by below-the-ankle lesions. The use of TcPO2 measurements may be helpful in determining adequate reperfusion to promote wound healing (Redlich et al). Joseph DeMarco, DO References
