Abstract

Many interventional cardiologists are becoming interested in the interventional treatment of noncoronary atherosclerotic disease. The elderly may be especially benefited by the application of many new techniques for the treatment of lower limb atherosclerosis, such as protection and thromboaspiration devices, new atherectomy devices, and cryoplasty. In this review the authors offer geriatric cardiologists an overview and an update of the most recent advances in techniques and results in the field of interventional treatment of aortoiliac and femorotibial artery atherosclerosis in the elderly.
