Answer

Recommendations for revascularization of infrapopliteal occlusive lesions are as follows:

  • In the case of chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI), infrapopliteal revascularization is indicated for limb salvage (class I recommendation; evidence level C)
  • For revascularization of infrapopliteal arteries, bypass using the great saphenous vein is indicated (class I recommendation; evidence level A); endovascular therapy should be considered (class IIa recommendation; evidence level B)
