During the roundtable, participants highlighted the potential of IVUS in guiding revascularization procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting, to optimize outcomes for patients. They also emphasized the need for further research and evidence to support the integration of IVUS into routine clinical practice.

"The insights gained from this roundtable will help shape future research, training and clinical guidelines in the field of lower extremity revascularization," Secemsky said. "By leveraging the power of IVUS, we can improve our ability to diagnose and treat patients, ultimately leading to better outcomes and quality of life."

The roundtable concluded with a commitment to ongoing interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing among physicians. Participants agreed that treatment standards, formal training programs and global quality metrics remain needed to improve patient care.

The considerations and consensus views shared in “Intravascular Ultrasound Use in Peripheral Arterial and Deep Venous Interventions: Multidisciplinary Expert Opinion From SCAI/AVF/AVLS/SIR/SVM/SVS” represent the opinion of the consensus committee members.
