Angioplasty with paclitaxel coated balloon reduces restenosis in peripheral artery disease

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty using a paclitaxel coated balloon notably improves arterial patency at one year when compared with the same procedure using a standard uncoated balloon in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease, a study in the New England Journal of Medicine has shown.1

Dressings and topical agents for arterial leg ulcers | Cochrane

People with blood circulation problems in their legs can develop leg ulcers. The majority of ulcers result from poor blood flow in the veins and are treated by compression. Arterial leg ulcers occur because of poor blood supply to the legs when there is a block in a leg artery or narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis). Without treatment of the underlying poor arterial blood supply, ulcers take a long time to heal or may never heal. These ulcers are treated by covering them with dressings, or using creams or ointments (topical agents), or both to promote healing and protect the ulcers from infection. A variety of types of dressings can be used depending on the overall aim of the treatment. The intention is to select dressings to reduce ulcer pain, manage exudate if present (the fluid that can leak from these ulcers) and promote healing.

Pentoxifylline for intermittent claudication | Cochrane

Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, results in narrowing and blockage of the arteries and can reduce the blood supply to the legs, causing peripheral arterial disease. Intermittent claudication (IC) is a cramp-like pain felt in the leg muscles that is brought on by walking and is relieved by standing still or resting. Pentoxifylline is a drug that is used to relieve IC while improving people's walking capacity. It decreases blood viscosity and improves red blood cell flexibility, promoting microcirculatory blood flow and increasing oxygen in the tissues. This review looked at all available evidence from randomised controlled trials on the efficiency of pentoxifylline for treatment of IC.
