"What I value the most is the double ePTFE layer, the good profiles and the navigation of iCover. I would also highlight the good visibility offered by the radiopaque markers that facilitate the precise placement of the stent, as in this case, which is perfectly implanted at the left common iliac artery ostium."
74 year-old male with hyperlipidaemia and hypertension, with no previous history of PAD.
The patient suffered an episode of embolization in the left foot.
On examination, an ulcerated plaque in the left common iliac artery was detected (Image 1 and Image 2).
As iCover is a complete encapsulated stent, the guidewire was able to pass fluently (Image 5). This feature facilitated the treatment of the left lower limb from a contralateral approach.
