A prospective randomised trial of nitinol stents vs balloon angioplasty in obstructive popliteal lesions.

Conclusion Nitinol stents perform better than balloon angioplasty alone in treating popliteal artery blockages, resulting in higher primary patency rates, lower revascularisation and greater walking distances at one year than in those treated with angioplasty.
