Abstract

In third world countries like India, where there is a paucity of dedicated interventional radiologists and training fellowships in peripheral interventions, it is the onus of the cardiologist to perform peripheral interventions. This coupled with logistic constraints of unavailability of medical insurance for majority of the population, makes it necessary to modify coronary hardware for use in peripheral interventions. Here, we discuss the modifications and simplifications performed to ensure optimal quality of clinical outcomes.
