Lower extremity arteries (abdominal aorta, iliac, superficial femoral and infrapopliteal arteries): This includes:

  • Lifestyle-limiting claudication
  • Focal hemodynamically significant lesion
  • Ischemic rest pain
  • Non-healing tissue ulceration
  • Focal gangrene

Stent placement in infrapopliteal vessels is not expected to be often indicated and in those cases the rationale for stent placement must be explained in the record.
