Objective: The common femoral artery (CFA) is an unusual location for endovascular repair (ER). We report the early results after ER of the CFA in a single centre. Design: This is a cohort study. Materials/Methods: From 2006 to 2008, ER of the CFA was proposed to 36 patients (mean age 67.9, range 51-92). CFA lesions were classified into four types: in type I, lesions were located at the iliac external artery and were extended to the CFA; in type II, lesions were limited to the CFA; in type III, lesions were located at the CFA and its bifurcation; type IV represents restenosis bypass anastomosis. All patients were treated by stenting. Results: Indications for ER of the CFA included 25 patients (70%) for claudication and 11 patients (30%) for critical limb ischaemia. Forty-three stents were implanted. The mean follow-up was 22 months (range, 12-42). At 1 year, primary and secondary sustained clinical improvements were 80% and 90%; target lesion revascularisation and target extremity revascularisation free cumulative survival were 85% and 80%, respectively, and in-stent restenosis rate was 20%. One stent fracture was noted. Conclusions: ER of CFA and concomitant arterial lesions seems to be a safe technique with acceptable clinical outcome at 1 year. © 2011 European Society for Vascular Surgery.
