About the PQ DETOUR Procedure
During the PQ DETOUR procedure, fluoroscopic guidance is used to deploy a series of proprietary PQ Bypass Stent Grafts from the popliteal artery into the femoral vein, and from the femoral vein into the superficial femoral artery (SFA) in a continuous, overlapping fashion through two independent anastomoses. The final result is a large lumen, endograft bypass that delivers unobstructed, pulsatile flow from the SFA ostium to the popliteal artery and restores blood flow to the lower extremities.
