Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Tibiopedal Access for Crossing of Infrainguinal Artery Occlusions

Further study details as provided by Cook:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Technical Success deeming tibial pedal arterial access [ Time Frame: 1 - 4 hours post-procedure. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 199
Study Start Date: May 2012
Study Completion Date: August 2013
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
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.


Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
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
