Abstract

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) affects millions across the world and in the United States between 9% to 23% of all patients older than 55 years. The refinement of surgical techniques and evolution of endovascular approaches have improved the success rates of revascularization in patients afflicted by lower extremity PAD. However, restenosis or occlusion of previously treated vessels remains a pervasive issue in the postoperative setting. A variety of different imaging options are available to evaluate patients and are reviewed within the context of asymptomatic and symptomatic patients with PAD who have previously undergone endovascular or surgical revascularization. The American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria are evidence-based guidelines for specific clinical conditions that are reviewed annually by a multidisciplinary expert panel. The guideline development and revision include an extensive analysis of current medical literature from peer reviewed journals and the application of well-established methodologies (RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method and Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation or GRADE) to rate the appropriateness of imaging and treatment procedures for specific clinical scenarios. In those instances where evidence is lacking or equivocal, expert opinion may supplement the available evidence to recommend imaging or treatment.
