Intravascular Ultrasound for Lower Extremity Arterial and Venous Intervention

IVUS is strongly supported for use during lower extremity arterial and venous intervention. In the Iliac, Superficial Femoral, and Popliteal arteries, IVUS had the highest support for use during intra-procedure and post-procedure optimization and recommended that IVUS be considered the standard of care. In the Tibial arteries, IVUS use is supported and recommended as the standard of care for all three procedural phases for tibial arterial intervention.

In venous, experts agree that IVUS use is appropriate during all three phases for all venous case scenarios presented and is recommended to be the standard of care.
