Your input is needed on a review considering angioplasty techniques

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on angioplasty techniques for people with peripheral arterial disease?

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Drug-eluting balloon angioplasty versus uncoated balloon angioplasty for peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs.” Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, peripheral arterial disease), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for those experiencing angioplasty or arterial disease, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!
