Since the first peripheral endovascular intervention (PVI) in 1964, the procedure's technical aspects and indications have advanced significantly. Today, endovascular procedures span the spectrum of presentations from acute limb ischemia to critical limb ischemia and symptomatic limiting claudication. Goals of PVI remain restoring limb perfusion, minimizing rates of amputation and mortality, and sparing the need for the high-risk bypass surgery. Unfortunately, there are no large randomized controlled trials that address the optimal approach to peripheral arterial disease revascularization in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.
