The results of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, atherectomy, and laser angioplasty for the treatment of long-segment (>10 cm) superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusive disease have proved disappointing. Remote superficial femoral artery endarterectomy (RSFAE) is a minimally invasive procedure, performed through a single limited groin incision that may offer patency rates comparable with those of above-knee femoropopliteal (AKFP) bypass graft. In this retrospective multicenter study the medium-term results of RSFAE are examined.
