Abstract

BACKGROUND: A distal approach in endovascular procedures for revascularization of lowers limbs can be considered in case of no re-entry in subintimal recanalization. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of a medial approach to the infrageniculate popliteal artery (IPA) using existing computed tomography (CT) scan simulation and punctures performed on cadavers. METHODS AND RESULTS: CT angiographies of lower extremities were used to simulate IPA puncture and puncture trajectory. Tissues damaged during the trajectory between the puncture site and the access-related injuries were analyzed. Anatomical punctures on cadaverous model were also performed. Corpses were placed in supine position, the hip in slight flexion (40°) and abduction (external rotation of 60°). A 16 G needle was used for the IPA puncture. Twelve CT angiography simulations were made. Of these 12 simulations, 9 revealed an isolated lesion of the popliteal vein and 2 isolated lesions of the tibial nerve. A lesion of the tibial nerve and the popliteal vein on the same simulation was once observed. Damage to the medial gastrocnemius muscle could not be avoided in each case. Ten punctures were performed on cadavers with technical success. There were 6 popliteal vein lesions, 3 tibial nerve lesions, and 1 case without lesion. In all cases, damage to the medial gastrocnemius muscle was seen. CONCLUSIONS: This medial approach was feasible and is accompanied by trauma of elements of the popliteal pedicle. Preoperative CT angiography could anticipate best site of puncture and potential access-related injury.
