Endovascular options for the treatment of AIOD and popliteal artery thrombosis in a case of acute limb ischemia

Surgical thrombectomy is considered the first line strategy for the treatment of acute iliac axis and femoro-popliteal thrombosis, but in some cases it can be inconclusive and lead to controlateral and/or distal embolization and dissection.
This is a case report describing the endovascular options for the treatment of aorto-iliac obstructive disease complicated by popliteal artery thrombosis after failure of surgical trans-femoral iliac thrombectomy in a patient with acute limb ischemia.

Hybrid revascularization of an acute iliac vessel occlusion: Keep the hypogastric patent

Bilateral hypogastric artery occlusion is associated with increased morbidity in patients with acute limb ischemia. Although transfemoral lilac thrombectomy is considered a straightforward procedure, it might lead to an occlusion of the hypogastric artery. However, simple endovascular techniques can be helpful in keeping the hypogastric arteries patent.
