This on-demand activity will show a series of cases in SFA and infrapopliteal interventions. DES, DEB and nitinol stents will be discussed. These cases will then serve as the springboard for discussion of the various techniques to achieve both procedural as well as clinical success. This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, vascular physicians, other physicians, and nurses, techs, ets. at all levels with special interst in arterial intervention.
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.
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.
Upon completion of this enduring activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify indications and current endovascular approach to SFA and infrapopliteal interventions.
- Explain when to use DES, DEB, standard angioplasty and nitinol stents
- Discuss the various techniques for lesion traversal
- Determine the best ways to deal with complications
- Demonstrate techniques to maximize vessel patency and amputation free survival

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
The Society of Interventional Radiology is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Society of Interventional Radiology designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 3.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This program is approved for self-assessment CME credit (SA-CME) by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR). SIR is awarded Deemed Status by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). The SA-CME credit offered for this enduring activity meets the ABR’s criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program.
