Q: How did the Pedal Loop technique originate?
A: The pedal loop interventional technique also called pedal loop angioplasty or revascularization, originated from pioneering interventionalists in Europe and Asia. I’ve been doing this for many years, as have my colleagues here at American Endovascular. We have adopted this technique over the last decade to allow us to treat patients with the most complex patterns of arterial obstructions resulting in wounds, pain, and gangrene. By utilizing this technique, which we learned from experts elsewhere, we are now the foremost and preeminent leaders in this country in treating patients with very advanced Arterial disease affecting pedal loop, which might result in amputation if these procedures are not correctly performed.
