This chapter discusses the technical aspects of endovascular and open surgery for chronic lower limb ischaemia. Chronic lower limb ischaemia is perhaps the most common disease that vascular surgeons manage and therefore a thorough understanding of the techniques required to revascularize lower limbs is required. Guidance is given in the chapter on the indications and revascularization techniques to employ for a variety of chronic lower limb ischaemia scenarios according to the morphological nature of peripheral arterial disease and other patient related factors. The technical aspects of straightforward and more complex revascularizations are explained in a step by step fashion. Intra-operative trouble shooting and common pitfalls are explained in detail along with standard post-operative management algorithms.
