Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The popliteal artery may well be the most challenging of all infra-inguinal vessels to treat. Not only is it anatomically unique but it's also exposed to some of the most brutal forces seen in the lower limb, during normal knee flexion. Management may be challenging and with few randomized trials dedicated to answering questions of technical success and durability the correct approach remains contentious. Herein we seek to describe and evaluate the growing number of options for treatment in this vascular territory.
