Cypher drug-eluting stent treatment of tibioperoneal obstructive disease: A case report

Academic Article


  • Stent placement in a tibial artery for suboptimal angioplasty results has had a high rate of restenosis and occlusion due to neointimal hyperplasia. Drug-eluting stents may provide a new therapeutic option in this situation. We describe the use of a Cypher drug-eluting stent after suboptimal angioplasty result in a claudicant with a severe tibioperoneal trunk lesion and single-vessel runoff to the foot with 6-month follow-up. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
