CEBALLOS, Oswaldo Efraín et al. Evaluation of permeability following endovascular procedures in patients with lower limb arterial obstructions. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.3, pp.280-284. ISSN 2011-7582.

Peripheral arterial disease is a pathology difficult to diagnose, since it mainly remains asymptomatic, which conditions the significant advance in its natural history and why at diagnosis it appears advanced in most patients. The prevalence of the disease has been determined in multiple studies, and varies from 3 to 18, higher than that perceived by health professionals, as well as its repercussions, both clinical, social, and economic. It constitutes a major health problem and remains an underestimated and underdiagnosed disease. Endovascular interventions of peripheral vascular pathologies are considered a fundamental treatment tool. However, there is no complete clarity regarding the patency time after endovascular interventions in the management of arterial occlusion, nor on methods that increase the degree of effectiveness of the procedure.

Keywords : peripheral arterial disease; femoral artery; popliteal artery; tibial arteries; endovascular procedures; permeability.
