Special Issue Information
Atherosclerotic peripheral artery disease (PAD) and especially critical limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) represent major manifestations of cardiovascular diseases. More than 200 million individuals worldwide suffer from PAD, experiencing high morbidity and mortality rates despite modern pharmacologic treatment options. The associated costs are even higher than in patients experiencing stroke, as shown in recent population-based studies.
Recent innovations in endovascular treatment, such as thrombectomy, atherectomy, and lithotripsy, have created great opportunities to improve treatment algorithms in PAD and, possibly, patient-related outcomes. In addition, the role of biomarkers, which is well-established for the risk stratification of patients with cardiac diseases, is less known in patients with PAD. Thus, there are clear gaps in knowledge and a need for novel evidence-based treatment strategies both for patients with lifestyle limiting claudication and patients with CLTI, encompassing both endovascular and open-repair options.
This Special Issue aims to collect original articles and reviews investigating pathophysiologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects related to the risk stratification and management of PAD patients.
