Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The prevalence of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and, in particular, chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) is increasing globally, not only in high-income countries but also in middle- and low-income countries. The rise in PAD and CLTI is leading to an increased need for, and complexity of, peripheral revascularizations, especially for below-the-knee (BTK) pathologies. The treatment of PAD has changed significantly over the past few decades, and an endovascular-first strategy has been adopted in most centers. In the contemporary era of endovascular therapy for PAD and CLTI, developments and innovations have followed each other at a great pace. Over the years, image guidance, endovascular materials, and revascularization techniques have evolved, enabling us to treat more complex cases. On one hand, the evolution of endovascular revascularization for the treatment of PAD opens doors for innovations related to interventional planning, imaging, techniques, the application of artificial intelligence (AI), and patient selection. On the other hand, there are also drawbacks, such as the negative effects of radiation exposure, discussions regarding long-term patency, and cost-effectiveness issues, which raise new research questions. This Special Issue will address topics that can keep us in the loop and help us to achieve faster, more effective, cheaper, and safer interventions, beneficial for (future) patients, interventionalists, and the healthcare system.

We would like to invite you to contribute an original research or review article to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
