The RCPAD network has now been active for one year. This is an update of what our group and those who supported us have achieved during this time.

During the last year a total of 27 hospitals have taken part in RCPAD projects and data regarding more than 5,000 patients have been collected.


The main objective of this retrospective, multicenter, international registry is to analyze the surgical outcomes in terms of overall patency and limb salvage of patients with popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) undergoing open surgical treatment with posterior approach or endovascular exclusion with covered stents.

To investigate the safety and effectiveness of the endovascular and surgical revascularization techniques for the treatment of consecutive patients with CFA lesions within a real-world registry. Patients will be included with claudication or rest pain due CFA stenosis or occlusion.

In addition, outcomes including improvement in terms of Rutherford category, target lesion revascularization, will be systematically analyzed in all patients.


Funded by Boston Scientific; a Europe-wide project assessing the cost of re-interventions after endovascular therapy in patients with PAD. This is the first multicentre micro-costing exercise in this population of patients. It is supported by RCPAD, FCRE, University of Leicester, and several collaborators across Europe. Results will be published in 2024.
