Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a worldwide major health challenge, and it is a strong predictor of mortality and morbidity. The advances in PAD treatment have resulted in many therapeutic options or endovascular interventions (EVIs) for endovascular revascularization if drug therapy does not lead to substantial improvement. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have reported the efficacy of various EVIs such as atherectomy, stents, and medicated balloons over the traditional transluminal angioplasty; however, the standard treatment for PAD remains unclear due to the lack of head-to-head comparative studies between different EVIs. Additionally, the variable outcomes between clinical trials regarding the functional capacity and quality of life (QoL) make it difficult to ascertain the superiority of one particular EVI over another. Therefore, the latest PAD clinical trials should include head-to-head comparisons between different EVIs, and this review aimed to highlight the femoro-popliteal EVIs, evidence supporting each intervention and why those EVIs are used.
