ABSTRACT
To quantify neointimal hyperplasia in iliac arteries after stent implantation, correlating clinical, arterial factors and stent material. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In the period from June/2003 to August/ 2005, 60 patients were submitted to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting. Among these patients, 30 were followed-up with intravascular ultrasonography. Data were analyzed in a laboratory of quantitative analysis by means of a specific software. RESULTS: Sixteen (53.3%) patients were men, and 14 (46.7%), women, and the mean age was 60.3 years. Arterial hypertension was observed in 22 patients (73.3%), smoking in 18 (62.1%), hyperlipidemia in 20 (66.7%), and diabetes in 9 (30%). A total of 20 nitinol stents (66.7%) and 10 stainless steel stents (33.3%) were implanted. Four patients were classified as TASC A (13.3%), 15 TASC B (50%) and 11 TASC C (36.7%). The neointimal hyperplasia volume ranged from 49.02 mm3 to 112.87 mm3 (mean, 80.33 mm3). The rate of intrastent obstruction ranged from 18% to 47% (mean, 27.4%). The clinical outcomes achieved with stenting were sustained through the follow-up. CONCLUSION: Neointimal hyperplasia is a common finding after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting, but in the present study the stenosis rate was never higher than 50%. There was no statistically significant difference in intrastent stenosis rates in relation to stents materials, clinical and arterial risk factors.
