Abstract

There is insufficient evidence to assess the effects of PTA versus PS for stenotic and occlusive lesions of the iliac artery. From one study it appears that PS in iliac artery occlusions may result in lower distal embolisation rates. More studies are required to come to a firm conclusion.
