Abstract

There has been a resurgence of atherectomy as a strategy to treat peripheral atherosclerosis. Distal embolization occurs frequently during peripheral endovascular interventions but is of particular concern during atherectomy. We describe a case of distal embolization following atherectomy with the Pathway JetStream system successfully managed with aspiration thrombectomy and infrapopliteal angioplasty. A detailed review of the incidence, treatment, and prevention of DE in this context are presented.
