Answer

When conservative measures fail to improve quality of life and function, endovascular procedures are considered. [1] However, the timing and need for revascularization are related to the general primary presentations of claudication, critical limb ischemia, and acute limb ischemia, in which urgent intervention is warranted for critical limb ischemia. [1, 2]
