Surgical or endovascular revascularization procedures for severe peripheral artery disease (PAD) are typically performed in patients with lifestyle-limiting symptoms or evidence of end-organ ischemia secondary to PAD. The role of endovascular therapy in the treatment of PAD is expanding. Contrast-induced nephropathy is the most important and most frequent renal complication of endovascular interventional procedures. Knowledge about complications and their prevention and management is essential for successful outcomes. This article focuses on renal complications during peripheral artery interventions.
