We present a review of the literature on endovascular brachytherapy (EVBT) after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in the femoropopliteal and tibial arteries. The pathophysiological changes induced by PTA and EVBT within the vessel wall, technical considerations regarding 192Ir and 188Re, the results of clinical trials, and the medication required before, during, and after EVBT are summarized.
