Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) remains an underdiagnosed problem in the medical community. Interventional cardiologists are in a unique position to diagnose, treat, and spread awareness about this disease. As practitioners continue to expand their services to include vascular and endovascular components, it is critical to recognize the key components for building a successful and reputable PAD program: Expertise, Commitment, Collaboration, and Quality. After you become comfortable performing and managing more complex PAD lesions, you could begin to incorporate critical limb ischemia (CLI) into your program.
