Reinterventions in the superficial femoral artery.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The management of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) has drastically changed since the introduction and advancement of endovascular surgery. The majority of PAD that requires mechanical treatment is managed with endovascular interventions using a variety of techniques and devices. The infrainguinal vasculature, especially the superficial femoral artery (SFA), poses a significant challenge to successful long-term outcomes for a variety of reasons.
