The treatment of multisegment superficial femoral artery and tibial vessels atherosclerotic disease is traditionally a femoro-distal bypass using in situ or reversed autogenous vein. The improved result of balloon angioplasty and stenting of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) has extended its application to treat long segment SFA stenosis. A combined endovascular-open surgery approach of SFA endovascular stenting with a popliteal-distal bypass is an alternative less invasive procedure to achieve optimum distal revascularization for limb salvage.
