abstract

  • Percutaneous infrainguinal revascularization is a very effective modality in women with lower extremity occlusive disease. Although women in this sample were more likely to present with limb-threat than men, patency and limb-salvage rates were equivalent between genders, even in high-risk subsets such as diabetics or those with lesions of increased TASC severity.
