    The Impact of Optical Coherence Tomography on the Endovascular Treatment Planning of Femoropopliteal Disease

    Rationale: Peripheral arterial disease is a severe clinical problem with an increasing prevalence, due to an ageing population. Endovascular treatment, usually using stents, is recommended for most lesions in the femoropopliteal tract. The patency of these stents is influenced by several factors, including stent sizing and stent positioning. Current procedural planning of femoropopliteal disease is primarily based on single-plane digital subtraction angiographies (DSA). This modality provides a 2-dimensional image of the vessel lumen, which may be suboptimal for stent sizing. It can therefore be difficult to choose the optimal stent position as minor lesions may be missed. Suboptimal treatment could ...
