Abstract

ABSTRACT

This is the first reported case of transposed femoro-saphenous angio-access complicated after four years by distal ischemia, which was successfully treated by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the distal femoral and popliteal artery. Endovascular recanalization and angioplasty of the distal vessels offers a minimally invasive approach with preservation of the angio-access in these patients with high comorbidities.
