Abstract: Background: Endovascular intervention for chronic total occlusions (CTOs) in aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) poses technical challenges. In this manuscript, our experience of fine needle recanalization for the treatment of iliac artery CTO is described. Method: A prospective database recorded treatment of 11 limbs in 11 patients since 2011 using this technique. The majority of these CTO were of the common iliac artery (n = 9). Results: Technical success rate was 91% (n = 10). One failed case was due to tortuous iliac anatomy. There was no restenosis of the treated segments at 8 weeks and no major complications, perforations, major limb loss, or periprocedural mortality. Conclusions: This technique is a safe and viable adjunct for difficult CTO in AIOD with suitable anatomy. It benefits from being a simple, low-profile, low-cost coaxial system and should be part of the armamentarium with other advanced endovascular techniques.
