Abstract

Endovascular intervention has become first-line treatment for the majority of atherosclerotic lesions associated with peripheral artery disease. Traditionally, treatment modalities have included various types of balloon angioplasty and stenting. However, recent technological advancements have introduced the concept of endovascular lithotripsy as a novel alternative to angioplasty and stenting. This new addition to the armamentarium of surgeons and interventionalists has the potential to alter the treatment paradigm for patients with complex peripheral artery disease.
