Peripheral arterial disease which progresses to chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) represents a patient population at exceptionally high risk for major amputation and mortality. CLTI has further been associated with a profound impact on a personal, societal, and fiscal level. Open surgical reconstruction has long been the gold standard approach for the treatment of CLTI. Recently, advancements in endovascular therapy have provided therapeutic options in these patients with reasonable outcomes. In this article, we review the current literature of open and endovascular outcomes in the revascularization for CLTI of the lower extremity and when open revascularization should be considered.
