The Rotarex® (ablation and motorized aspiration catheter) is a novel device for endovascular treatment of arteries occluded by thrombi in the lower extremities. We here report two successful cases treated with Rotarex® devices.Eighty four year old male and seventy five year old male were admitted to hospital because of feet ulcers and gangrenous color changes. CT angiography showed distal superficial femoral artery occlusion in both patients. So we underwent thrombectomy, motorized aspiration by Rotarex® and balloon angioplasty. Their wound markedly recovered and limbs losses were minimal.
As Rotarex® (ablation and motor aspiration) is a device which has the advantage of supplying both thrombi ablation and motor aspiration percutaneously, it is believed to play a major role in the treatment of thrombi containing peripheral arterial lesions, either new or old.
