Stefanos Giannopoulos, Ramon L Varcoe, Michael Lichtenberg, John Rundback, Marianne Brodmann, Thomas Zeller, Peter A Schneider, Ehrin J Armstrong,

Endovascular revascularization has been increasingly utilized to treat patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI), particularly atherosclerotic disease in the infrapopliteal arteries. Lesions of the infrapopliteal arteries are the result of 2 different etiologies: medial calcification and intimal atheromatous plaque. Although several devices are available for endovascular treatment of infrapopliteal lesions, ... Read more >>
