Within a 3-­year peri­od a ­total of 16 ­iliac ­artery occlu­sions in 16 ­patients ­were treat­ed ­with per­cut­ane­ous angio­plas­ty ­and stent­ing ­with ­the Streck­er ­stent with­out adjunc­tive throm­bo­lyt­ic ther­a­py. The ­length of ­the occlu­sions var­ied ­from 0.5 to 8 cm (­mean 4.1 cm). The aver­age ­stent diam­e­ter ­was 7.6 mm ­and ­the aver­age ­length ­was 6.1 cm. Reocclusion ­occurred in 3 ­patients (­two ­after ­one ­month ­and ­one ­after 11 ­months). One ­case of dis­sec­tion ­and ­two cas­es of dis­tal embol­iza­tion to ­the exter­nal ­iliac ­artery ­were diag­nosed dur­ing ­the pro­ce­dure by an angio­gram ­and ­were suc­cess­ful­ly treat­ed by stent­ing. Two cas­es of ­small ­groin hemat­o­ma ­were treat­ed con­ser­va­tive­ly.
