  • Prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center study
    • A total of 240 subjects with femoropopliteal artery disease will be included according to inclusion and exclusion criteria.
    • Patients will be randomized in a 1:1 manner into IVUS-guided or angiography-guided intervention group.
    • Second 1:1 randomization into dual antiplatelet therapy (aspirin + clopidogrel) or triple antiplatelet therapy (aspirin + clopidogrel + cilostazol) is optional
    • All patients will be treated with drug-coated balloons (In.PACT Admiral) for femoropopliteal lesions.
    • Bare metal self-expandable stents will be used in addition according to findings of IVUS or angiography such as severity of arterial dissection or residual stenosis.
    • Patients will be followed clinically for 1 year after the procedure.
    • Ankle-brachial index and Image study follow-up (Duplex US or CT angiography) will be performed at 1 year.
