In both superficial and deep femoral artery involvement, where angioplasty of the former is not suitable or feasible, angioplasty of the latter seems to be the method of choice and is a less invasive and efficient treatment particularly for limb threatening ischemia, an appropriate obstruction morphology provided. The authors describe a case of a 73-year-old man, with a rest pain of the foot and intermittent cyanosis of the toe, who underwent stent placement with transluminal angioplasty for severe stenosis in the deep femoral artery with the occluded superficial femoral and popliteal artery. The patient’s ankle brachial index was remarkably increased from 0.25 to 0.61, and the preoperative symptoms were improved.
