    OCT (optical coherence tomography) contribution assessment in the revascularisation of long femoro-popliteal occlusive lesions (TASC C and D): a randomised trial

    ackground Endovascular treatment has become the first-line revascularisation technique for femoropopliteal lesions. This technique lacks of reliable and accurate morphological control of the arterial segment treated. Intraoperative 2-D angiogram consumes iodinated contrast media and increases X-ray exposure; this subsequently provides none 3D information on the quality of the revascularisation completed, what could explain some of the early and late failures of the technique. Aim Our objective is to evaluate if intra-operative optical coherence tomography (OCT) control in addition to standard angiogram could improve the primary patency rate at 12 months in comparison to standard angiogram alone in patients with occlusive ...
