This observational prospective study will evaluate, according o usual local clinical practice, feasibility of endoluminal revascularization in diabetic patients with type C and D lesions, according to TASC II Criteria.

About 300 patients will be treated with usual revascularization procedure. Each patient will be followed at least 12 months to evaluate clinical outcome and limb salvage interventions.
