Abstract

The role of percutaneous atherectomy in the management of atherosclerotic vascular disease is not completely defined at the present time. Longterm follow-up is needed to establish its role relative to and in conjunction with transluminal angioplasty. Nevertheless, our results are encouraging in that successful immediate angiographic and clinical results have been obtained and 12-month patency rates have been similar to, if not better than, those of transluminal angioplasty.
