Abstract

The goal of lower extremity revascularization is to relieve pain, heal wounds, and prevent amputations by restoration of arterial perfusion. This necessarily brief overview will discuss the indications for vascular reconstruction and the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease, and review of the "open" vascular procedures used for revascularization.
