Abstract

Vascular disease involving the superficial femoral artery (SFA) is common. Once the decision to treat the SFA is made, the benefits and limitations of angioplasty and stents must be applied to each specific patient. Additionally, the potential role of covered stents as well as drug eluting stents must be considered.
