Background: Superficial femoral artery chronic total occlusion (SCTO) is a common type of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Endovascular therapy is a treatment approach that has a poor long-term success rate in this group. The aim of this study was to compare the mid-term results of two different uses of nitinol stents in long SCTO lesions (>100 mm): the use of one long stent or two shorter stents.
