From preoperative imaging he needs a 20cm SFA occlusion stopping before the adductor hiatus recanalizing as well as multilevel tibial disease which appears to be a combination of short occlusions and stenoses. The dorsal pedal is seen in the foot and is in continuity with the arch. The PT artery appears occluded through it’s whole length.
