The value of IVUS in endovascular procedures


In this supplement, sponsored by Philips:

  • Paul Gagne explains how intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) can be used to guide the treatment of chronic venous disease, discussing the various pathologies and patients in which the benefits of IVUS imaging are “irrefutable”
  • Stephen Black speaks about his experience using IVUS in venous procedures
  • Considering the addition of intravascular imaging to angiography in peripheral arterial disease (PAD) procedures, Michael Lichtenberg and Konstantinos Stavroulakis write that IVUS “should be available in all major interventional centres”
  • Case study by Jihad Mustapha: The value of IVUS in CLTI revascularisation
  • Jörg Tessarek provides a step-by-step procedural guide to using IVUS in endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) procedures
  • Based on evidence in the literature and their own clinical experience, Fabrizio Fanelli and Gianmarco Falcone detail how IVUS has come to be considered a “valid and safe tool” in the endovascular treatment of thoracic and abdominal aortic pathologies
