Peripheral vascular disease is a common, disabling malady, and patients seeking treatment may turn to their cardiologist for advice and treatment. Conventional treatment has always been medical management and surgical bypass, even amputation. Stents have had a significantly high impact on endoluminal treatment outcomes by preventing injury to the lumen, reducing the potential for hyperplasia and restenosis, as well as the likelihood of plaque disruption and embolization. This second edition brings together a combination of the current evidence-based information with personal experience and is presented by a team of distinguished operators.
