Revascularization: Femoropopliteal

Arya Bagherpour, Arsalan Saleem, Gunvir Gill, Eric M. Walser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, the discussion of femoropopliteal occlusive disease begins with its clinical and noninvasive diagnosis. Established medical and surgical therapies are then described. Finally, the chapter focuses on endovascular methods, including the multitude of past failures and their evolution to more modern devices and treatments available today and in the near future. The importance of critical manuscript review in this subject area cannot be overstated. The reader must consider important comparative data when evaluating the various treatments for femoropopliteal arterial disease, including, but not limited to, the status of the runoff and inflow vessels, the length and degree of calcification of lesions treated, clinical versus imaging follow-up, and the presence of concomitant disease states such as diabetes, continued smoking, or renal failure.
