Complete restoration of blood flow with the Ranger Drug-Coated Balloon
Case study: treatment of a 76-year-old male patient with right anterior tibial and tibio-peroneal trunk occlusions using the Ranger™ Drug-Coated Balloon
Dr. Max Amor (Clinique Louis Pasteur) and Dr. Luis Mariano Palena (Policlinico Abano Terme) successfully treat a 76-year-old male patient with right lower limb rest pain and three-vessel disease, including severe occlusions and multiple stenoses in the right anterior tibial artery and right tibio-peroneal trunk. After gaining access to the anterior tibial artery and predilating the vessel, they treat the residual stenosis in the artery using a 2.5 x 150 mm Ranger™ Drug-Coated Balloon. Following treatment of the anterior tibial artery, a second 3 x 150 mm Ranger Drug-Coated Balloon is deployed in the right tibio-peroneal artery followed by post-dilatation of the vessel. The procedure results in the complete restoration of blood flow into the posterior tibial artery and microcirculation in the patient’s heel and toes.
Referring to the final result, Dr. Palena concludes, “the patient could not ask for better.”
