    Progression of Intimal Hyperplasia and Multiple-Channel Formation After Fogarty Thrombectomy Insight Into Vasculopathy From Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Findings

    Given the marked increase in the number of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) (1) , more than 80% of acute limb ischemia (ALI) cases are now due to cardiac embolism associated with AF (2) . Fogarty thrombectomy is the gold standard treatment of ALI. An 87-year-old man with a chronic AF who underwent Fogarty thrombectomy for ALI due to cardiac embolism in his right leg 1 year earlier was hospitalized in our department for the treatment of right calf claudication ( Figures 1A and 1B ). His ankle-brachial index (ABI) was 0.69 on the right. Enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed a severe focal ...
