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.
