Brief Summary:

The purpose of this trial is to compare short- medium long-term results in treatment of PAD (peripheral arterial disease) in the crural arteries with either drug coated balloon or conventional balloons in a prospective , randomized, single center study

Results will be defined as:

Limb salvage, Event-free survival, Freedom from TLR (target lesion revascularization), Primary patency, Clinical success, Serious adverse events, and the patients will be followed-up for 1 years.

Primary endpoints:

Primary Patency at 12 months

Secondary endpoints:

Event free survival, Clinical success at 6,12 months, Technical success, Serious adverse events, TLR (clinical driven),

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary patency of treated crural vessels [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Evaluation with MRA (Magnetic Resonans Angiography) at 12 months, regarding binary restenosis or occlusion in the treated arterial segment. Proportion of treated segments that remains open.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Porportion of patients that needs retreatment in in the monitored arterial segment
