Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Freedom from BTK MALE+POD [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Composite of all-cause death, above-ankle amputation or major reintervention

  2. Limb Salvage [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Freedom from the composite of above ankle amputation

  3. Primary Patency [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Freedom from target vessel occlusion and clinically driven target lesion reintervention

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Wound healing [ Time Frame: 30 days; 6 months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months ]
    Healed or not, if not, improving, stagnant, worsening

  2. Primary Patency [ Time Frame: 30 days and at 6 months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months ]
    Freedom from occlusion without clinically-driven Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR)

  3. Hemodynamic outcome [ Time Frame: 30 days and at 6 months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months ]
    change in toe & ankle pressures

  4. Clinically-driven TLR [ Time Frame: 30 days and at 6, 12, 24, and 36 months ]
    Revascularization performed on all randomized patients who returned with clinical symptoms, and if the subject has a target lesion diameter stenosis ≥ 50%.

  5. Limb salvage in surviving subjects [ Time Frame: 30 days and at 6, 12, 24, and 36 months ]
    No Amputation of target limb
