Sigterman TA, Bolt LJ, Snoeijs MG, et al. Radiation Exposure during Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty for Symptomatic Peripheral Arterial Disease. Ann Vasc Surg. 2016 May;33:167-72.

Endovascular interventions often are the preferred treatment in peripheral arterial disease for both intermittent claudication and chronic critical limb ischemia. Ever more advanced and anatomically complex procedures are being performed, which may increase the radiation exposure of patients and medical staff. We sought to determine the radiation exposure sustained in contemporary interventional radiology practice. A single-center observational cohort study of patients undergoing endovascular interventions for symptomatic peripheral arterial disease between January 1st, 2011 and July 31st, 2013 was performed.
