LINC 2024 - In this short interview, Dr Michael Lichtenberg (Vascular Centre Clinic Arnsberg, DE) discusses the findings of a study that researched the cost-effectiveness of intravascular ultrasound-guided peripheral vascular interventions in patients with femoropopliteal peripheral artery disease.

A two-step model was developed from a German healthcare payer perspective to estimate the costs and outcomes over a one-year and lifetime period. Clinical events included in the study were target lesion revascularisation, amputations and death. A sensitivity analysis was also performed to measure the robustness of the results.

Interview Questions:

  1. What is the importance of this study?
  2. Could you tell us about the study design?
  3. What are the key findings?
  4. What are the implications of these findings on clinical practice?

Recorded remotely from Arnsberg, 2024.
