Detailed Description:

Dilatation and recanalisation of the distal veins (infragenual popliteal artery, tibiofibular trunc, posterior tibial artery, anterior tibial artery) by classical balloon dilatation or cutting balloon with or without stenting or by endovascular laser. This intervention happens only once; the duration of the intervention depends on the procedure and the original injuries(30 - 120 minutes).
