The authors report their experience in the placement of a new Nitinol stent. Thirty eight stents were placed in 28 iliac arteries, 3 superficial femoral arteries, 1 popliteal artery, 2 subclavian arteries, and 2 veins of hemodialysis fistulae. The primary success rate was 100%, but several angioplasty balloons have been ruptured due to the specific configuration of the stent. The mean follow-up period was 6 months. Memotherm placement is an easy procedure, but the specific structure of the device makes the manipulation of the angioplasty balloons delicate, especially in tortuous vessels.
