Synopsis

Dr. Soukas shares his extensive experience and insights into PTAB development, benefits, patient selection, and procedural details. The idea behind PTAB is to create an SFA-to-popliteal artery bypass through endovascular means, using a system of overlapping stent grafts within the femoral vein as a conduit. When planning the procedure, it is important to consider the location of reentry into the popliteal artery, avoid calcified zones, and meet femoral vein size criteria. Additionally, we explore the advantages of PTAB over other endovascular options and traditional open surgical bypass, which carry a higher likelihood of restenosis and longer recovery times, respectively.

We also discuss the types of training and support available for physicians interested in adopting this technique, cost and reimbursement aspects, and the future direction of PTAB, including ongoing post-market studies.
