The article reflects the experience in and efficacy of endovascular interventions in patients presenting with type C and D lesions of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) according to the TASC II classification. The study included a total of 89 patients with the pathology involved. The obtained findings demonstrated encouraging immediate and remote results of the interventions performed, thus making it possible to recommend the use of angioplasty and stenting of long occlusions of the SFA, yielding satisfactory results in the majority of cases, both immediately after the operation and in the remote period.

KEY WORDS: chronic lower limb ischaemia, arterial atherosclerosis, endovascular treatment, stenting of the femoral artery, remote results, TASC II, TASC C lesion, TASC D lesion.
