Sex-Based Assessment of Patient Presentation, Lesion Characteristics, and Treatment Modalities in Patients Undergoing Peripheral Vascular Intervention
Internship and Residency
Women undergo peripheral endovascular intervention for peripheral arterial disease at an older age with critical limb ischemia. Treatment modalities do not vary by sex but are determined by disease severity and site. Although there exist sex differences in presentation, these differences do not lead to differential treatment for women with peripheral arterial disease.
