VDM March Issue Preview

The March 2013 issue of Vascular Disease Management will share some interesting case reports: one by Jon George, MD, who describes a patient with calcified infrapopliteal chronic total occlusion with critical limb ischemia that was successfully crossed using a TruePath CTO catheter, and another by Craig Walker, MD, and Ragotham Patlola, MD, FACC, about the use of an excimer laser with direct lytic infusion through the laser catheter to treat patients with occluded synthetic graft occlusions. The issue will also include an article on use of the “chimney” graft technique as well as interviews with leaders in the vascular arena. See the full editor’s update for the March issue below.
