DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
TASC is an acronym for "TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus" group. In 2000, this group presented a consensus document of vascular specialists based on sound data on epidemiology, diagnostics and therapy of PAVK. The classification of lesions was based on their localization (aorto-iliac, femoropoliteal, infrapopliteal), the extent of the lesions (stenosis, occlusion, single vs. multiple lesions) and the extent of the lesions (in centimeters).
Note(s)This section has been translated automatically.
Each vascular segment is assigned lesion types from A to D: Type A lesions are to be treated interventionally radiologically, type B lesions primarily interventionally, type C lesions without high surgical risk mainly vascular surgery and type D lesions vascular surgery.
The assessment of lesions in the course of the vessel refers only to one localization.
