The treatment of infrainguinal arterial disease has changed significantly in the last 20 years, with the introduction of many new devices and therapies. There are now numerous options to restore flow through or around the superficial femoral artery (SFA) to provide adequate perfusion to the leg. In this article we will discuss the current approach to SFA reconstruction, including identification of the extent of disease with imaging, and an algorithm to treat disease using both open and endovascular approaches.
