Abstract

Background. The purpose of the research was to try to assess the alternative method of re-establishing the
patency in femoro-popliteal segment of the artery using remote endarterectomy.

Material and methods. The group of 16 patients with an occlusion in the femoro-popliteal segment of the
artery was included in the study. They were qualified to be treated with the use of the MollRing Cutter device.

Results. In 62.5% of patients (10 people) the procedure was performed without any difficulties in restoring
the full femoro-popliteal patency rate.

Conclusions. The procedure of patency restoration in the superficial femoral artery, using remote endarterectomy
device in appropriately chosen cases is a good alternative to femoro-popliteal occlusion treatment
methods.
