Brief Summary:
The objective of this prospective, non-randomized, multicenter, post-market, observational study is to compile clinical data on percutaneous techniques used to obtain tibiopedal access and to cross infrainguinal arterial occlusions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Peripheral Arterial Disease Critical Limb Ischemia Device: Retrograde tibiopedal arterial access

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 199 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Tibiopedal Access for Crossing of Infrainguinal Artery Occlusions
Study Start Date : May 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : July 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : August 2013

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Retrograde access Device: Retrograde tibiopedal arterial access
Retrograde, percutaneous arterial access of vessels at or below the tibioperoneal trunk, using a 21 gage needle or micropuncture introducer set, to facilitate crossing and treatment (e.g., angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy) of occlusive arterial lesions in the lower limb.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Technical Success deeming tibial pedal arterial access [ Time Frame: 1 - 4 hours post-procedure. ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Older Adult
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients will be selected among those presenting with symptoms of peripheral arterial ischemic disease of the lower extremities and for whom endovascular intervention is deemed appropriate.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient has a totally occluded infrainguinal artery, due to peripheral arterial atherosclerotic disease, for which a previous attempt to cross the occlusion using an antegrade approach was unsuccessful. For institutions where tibiopedal access is performed as a primary standard-of-care procedure, a prior unsuccessful antegrade approach attempt is not required.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient will not sign the Informed Consent
