Abstract Technological advances in the past decade have shifted revascularization strategies from traditional open surgical approaches toward lower-morbidity percutaneous endovascular treatments for patients with lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The continuing advances in stent design, more than any other advances, have fueled the growth of catheter-based procedures by improving the safety, durability, and predictability of percutaneous revascularization. Although the 2007 TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) guidelines recommend endovascular therapy for type A and B aortoiliac and femoropopliteal lesions, recent developments in stent technology and increased experience of interventionists have suggested that a strategy of endovascular therapy first is appropriate in experienced hands for TASC type D lesions. The role of endovascular interventions is also expanding in the treatment of limb-threatening ischemia.
