Auto Draft

First usage in the Netherlands of the GoBack™ Catheter from Upstream Peripheral Technologies, Ltd. by the Isala (ziekenhuis).

58 Year old man with left sided Critical Limb Ischemia and right sided Claudication. Massive calcification of the Aortic-Iliac Arteries with an occlusion of the proximal left CIA.

Subintimal positioning of the guidewire at the bifurcation. The GoBack™ Catheter was positioned to obtain a re-entry into the true lumen. Contra-lateral inflation of a 8mm-4cm balloon, which was intentionally punctured with the GoBack™ Catheter for advancing a 0.018” guidewire into the true lumen.

At the left CIA a Getinge Advanta V12 7mm-59mm covered stent was placed, at the right CIA a PTA was performed.

With special thanks to Maurice PierieJacques OskamLennart Steenbeek and the whole team of the OR.
