Transluminal angioplasty for the management of vascular obstructions in the iliac arteries provides, without any doubt, the most satisfactory long-term patency rates, surpassing 85% to 90% at 7 years. It will be difficult to find a method that can improve these results. In this paper, we report our experience with the use of the Simpson atherectomy catheter in the management of iliac artery obstructions.
