Endovascular intervention is one of the main methods of treatment in atherosclerotic lesions of the infrainguinal segment in patients with chronic lower limb ischaemia. Recent years have witnessed active use of drug-eluting techniques, significantly improving the long-term outcomes of peripheral reconstructions.

This article is a review of publications on the results of using modern drug-eluting balloon catheters and stents in the femoropopliteoltibial position. The accumulated data will help solve the main problems of the classic balloon angioplasty, reducing the incidence of restenosis, improving primary patency, and decreasing the need for repeat interventions in the remote period of follow-up.

KEY WORDS: chronic lower limb ischaemia, peripheral reconstructions, drug-coated balloon catheters, drug-eluting stents, paclitaxel.
