SmartPerfusion case: Balloon Angiography of the distal Posterior Tibial Artery.



  • 55 year old male
  • Diabetic
  • Critical Limb Ischemia
  • Recent amputation of the 3rd toe, bad healing of the wound.
  • Posterior tibial artery occluded and fibular (peroneal) artery is fragile but without significant stenoses.



  • Balloon Angioplasty of the distal part of the Posterior Tibial Artery.
  • Peroneal Artery is too fragile to treat.

Dorsalis Pedis Artery (DPA)

Stealing effect in Dorsalis Pedis Artery (DPA), based on pre and post comparison.

Posterior Tibial Artery (PTA)

Posterior Tibial Artery (PTA) shows more and faster flow after treatment.

forefoot image

The forefoot is supplied with more blood after treatment.

Graph 1

  • Peak density drops after treatment in the DPA.
  • Area under curve reduces after treatment, indicating less blood to flow through the region of interest. This suggests a stealing effect due to opening of the PTA.

Graph 2

  • Conversely to the effect in the DPA, the PTA perfusion has increased.

Graph 3

  • Considering the whole forefoot, the perfusion characteristics have improved.
