Endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic femoropopliteal lesions is increasing, primarily because peripheral artery disease is very common and tends to recur after the first procedure, secondly because new techniques are becoming available. PTA and stenting are no longer the only treatments available and although there is still no agreement on the gold standard for the treatment of infrainguinal lesions, some studies have been conducted in order to give an answer. This review takes into account recent studies and clinical data to support the use of directional atherectomy.
