Percutaneous mechanical atherectomy - iliofemoral region.

Currently waiting for a response from University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust,

With regards to percutaneous mechanical atherectomy of lesions over 100mm in the iliofemoral region, do you have any recorded data about debulking this region followed by low pressure balloon angioplasty without stenting.

If you have any experience and recorded data about the aforementioned procedure could you please answer the following:

1. The number of percutaneous mechanical atherectomy procedures performed without stenting in the last 3 years?
2. The number of procedures that required re-intervention?
3. The primary patency results that you may have recorded for the 1 month, 6 month, 1 year and 3 year period.
4. Efficacy and safety of the procedure vs higher pressure balloon angioplasty with stenting (with or without debulking).
Given your experiences/recorded outcomes is this procedure better, worse or equal to higher pressure balloon angioplasty with stenting?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Kent
