Revascularization strategies in below the knee interventions

Abdelsalam H., Markose G., Bolia A.

Radiology Department Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester, UK

Until recently the role of endovascular revascularization in the infrapopliteal arteries was limited. Endo-vascular management including percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and subintimal angioplasty is now being considered as a primary alternative in critical limb ischaemia revascularization with a decreasing number of major amputations (above the ankle) performed. Endovascular treatment has been shown to have reduced morbidity and hospital stay compared to revascularization surgery with greater cost-effectiveness and better patient quality of life compared with major amputation.
