Back to Infra-inguinal disease: The essentials (On-demand)
This session discusses treatment strategies and clinical indications for the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries. This distribution of peripheral vascular disease offers a number of treatment alternatives which have impact on cost, reimbursement and both long and short term patency. The rapidly evolving technology being developed and currently in use will be discussed.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists and other physicians at all levels with special interest in infra-inguinal disease.
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate. To receive CME credit for this enduring activity, participants must watch the video and score 70% or better on the post-activity exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 70% or better.
Upon completion of this enduring activity, participants should be able to:
• Discuss treatment strategies and clinical indications for the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries
• Explain the treatment alternatives and how they may have impact on cost, reimbursement and both long and short term patency
• Describe the rapidly evolving technology that is currently in use and those being developed
