Aims and objectives: Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) angioplasty is a novel technology that has been proven to significantly reduce re-stenosis in coronary and femoro-popliteal arteries. We present in this study our experience in using DEB in the management of lower limb peripheral vascular disease and assessing the primary [...]

Methods and materials: Retrospective analysis was done for all Drug Elluting Balloon (DEB) angioplasties performed between 2012-2016. Data was collected on patient demographics, risk factors, degree of stenosis and target vessel, graft or stent. The end points were primary patency and target lesion revascularization [...]

Results: 40 DEB angioplasties were performed in our institute. Male to female ratio was 3:1 (28 male :12 Female) with mean age of 69 years (range 50-80 years). Average lesion length was 4.8 + 1.2 cm. 32.5% (n=13) of cases had a previous failed plain balloon angioplasty. 5% (n=2) cases had in-sten[...]

Conclusion: This study shows that DEB angioplasty has a high vessel/graft patency rate with minimal complication rate.
