Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess retrospectively the success of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in treating innominate artery stenoses and occlusion in a large series of patients with long-term follow-up results. METHODS: In symptomatic patients with high degree (> 60%) stenosis, innominate artery PTA was performed. Long-term follow-up was undertaken by blood pressure measurements on both arms as well as subclavian, right common carotid and right vertebral duplex scan. RESULTS: Between 1981 and 1999, primary success rate of 89 innominate artery PTA (84 stenoses, 5 occlusions) was 96.4%. Complications included 1 left occipital lobe infarction (1.5%), 2 puncture-site thrombosis (2.9%), and 4 TIA (5.8%). Two patients with restenosis were successfully treated with rePTA. Cumulative primary patency was 98 +/- 2% at 6 months, 93 +/- 4% at 16 to 117 months, secondary patency was 100% at 6 months, 98 +/- 2% at 12 to 117 months; 61% of the patients became symptomless, 32% improved, 7% showed no improvement. CONCLUSION: Angioplasty of the innominate artery has been proven to be safe and effective on a large series of patients. For innominate artery stenosis and short occlusion, PTA should be the first treatment of choice.
