Full Description: 

A 55-year-old male patient presented with a large non-healing wound and exposed bone at the base of the right great toe for almost 9 months. The patient previously received a superficial femoral artery stent for a diabetic foot ulcer. He also had a history of severe peripheral vascular disease almost 3 years prior, very severe coronary artery disease with an ejection fraction of 15%, morbid obesity, severe diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Prior to his presentation at our institution, attempted endovascular treatment at outside institutions failed. He was advised that a bypass and below-the-knee amputation were necessary. He came to us for endovascular limb salvage.
