- Brief summaryRationale: Visualization of local blood flow patterns in the aortoiliac tract is challenging, but clinically relevant as specific flow perturbations could affect atherosclerotic disease progression and stent patency.

Objective: To identify local flow patterns that can predict disease progression and failure of stent patency in patients with untreated and treated atherosclerotic lesions in the aortoiliac tract.

Study design: Prospective cohort study. Subjects will receive ultrasound particle image velocimetry (echoPIV) measurements at baseline to obtain blood flow velocity data and to calculate flow derived parameters. 5 year follow-up of subjects will be performed to measure clinical outcome parameters and the influence of the calculated flow parameters on these outcome parameters will be investigated.

Study population: The study population consists of three different patient groups. Group A: patients with a recently diagnosed stenotic lesion in the iliac arteries, with intermittent claudication, that are treated with exercise therapy. Group B: patients that receive endovascular treatment (single stent placement) of an isolated iliac stenotic lesion. Group C: patients that receive endovascular treatment of extensive aortoiliac stenotic lesions with covered endovascular reconstruction of the aortic bifurcation (CERAB) for aortoiliac occlusive disease.

Main study parameters/endpoints: The main predictor variables of this study are flow derived parameters, such as: mean wall shear stress (WSS), oscillatory shear index (OSI), recirculation and blood stasis. Clinical outcome parameters are: lesion severity (duplex US), walking distance and ankle-brachial-index (ABI) in group A and primary stent patency in group B and C.
