Peripheral artery disease (PAH) is a chronic and progressive disruption of the lower extremity arterial blood circulation due to systemic atherosclerosis. Nowadays, because of its relationship with increased mortality and morbidity, it is understood that it has importance beyond the isolated lower extremity malnutrition and is included in the classification of cardiovascular disease. In the prevalence studies conducted in our country, the incidence rate in the society with increasing age can be as high as 20-30%.
Patients with peripheral arterial disease should first stay away from smoking. Diabetes patients to keep their blood sugar levels at the desired level should pay maximum attention to their diet and drugs. If these are not observed, the disease can progress rapidly. Patients should also pay attention to their physical activity. Regular walks contribute to the formation of small vessels and increase blood supply in the legs. In addition, these activities help prevent many diseases, especially peripheral arterial disease.
Many methods have become applicable in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease by developing medical technology. Depending on the severity of the disease, it is also possible to treat with medication. However, in case of advanced condition, an obstructed vein should be attempted. Usually without the need for surgery, many diseases can now be treated with closed methods.
TemREN is used to prepare the lesion area for balloon angioplasty and to alleviate heavy plaque burden from atherosclerotic lesions.
TEMREN is usually difficult to treat with plaque overload with angioplasty and consists of arteries with chronic total obstruction and severe calcification lesions. TemREN helps reach the maximum lumen diameter for stent and balloon procedures. The set content is available and ready for use. There is no need for additional installation equipment or pre-operation equipment support. The rotational speed is easily adjustable and provides a safe working space for the surgeon. The atraumatic rotational distal end provides reliable operation. TemREN, thanks to its flexible spiral internal structure, transmits torque at the ratio of 1: 1 (distal / proximal). In addition, the inner helix aspirates the atherosclerotic media fragmented by the archimedes principle.
