Learning Objectives

  • REFLOW study has enrolled 120 patients with SFA stenotic long and complex lesions at high risk of restenosis.
  • Results at 1 year follow up showed high % primary patency (71%) and freedom from target lesion revascularization (80%) despite the long and complex lesions.
  • Improvement of Rutherford Class is maintained along the first year of follow up, showing claudication reduction for the patients enrolled.
  • Results at 2 year follow up (to be presented at LINC 2021) will bring additional info on the long term effect of LEGFLOW OTW in patients at high risk of restenosis.
