    Optical coherence tomography guided directional atherectomy with anti-restenotic therapy for femoropopliteal arterial disease

    BACKGROUND: Optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided directional atherectomy enables a real-time visualization of the arterial wall during plaque debulking and might optimize vessel preparation prior to DCB angioplasty. Nonetheless there is a paucity of data reporting on the outcomes of OCT-guided directional atherectomy with anti-restenotic therapy (DAART). Aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of OCT-guided DAART in the treatment of femoropopliteal atherosclerosis. METHODS: Patients treated by OCT-guided DAART for femoropopliteal occlusive disease between January 2015 and December 2016 were included into this retrospective, single center, single-arm analysis. The primary measure outcome of this study was primary patency ...
