This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Sex-related differences in the long-term outcomes of patients with femoropopliteal arterial disease treated with the IN.PACT drug-coated balloon in the IN.PACT SFA randomized controlled trial".
This is a post-hoc analysis on the influence of gender as observed in the IN.PACT SFA randomized controlled trial that compared the use of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) to the use of drug-coated balloon (DCB) technology. This study evaluated primary patency after treatment in Rutherford Clinical Category 2-4 with femoropopliteal arterial disease.
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
1. Examine observations on the impact of gender and primary patency.
2. Describe observed adverse events after thermal ablation.

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 (SIR) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. SIR designates this education activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This program is approved for 1 self-assessment CME credit (SA-CME) by the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) - approved August 1, 2020. 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.
