Revascularization of Superficial Femoral Artery due to Chronic Total Occlusion: Transcollateral Approach

Approximately 40% of the femoro-popliteal lesions present as total occlusion. Endovascular interventions are used more frequently in the treatment of these lesions, and antegrade passage through the occlusion is preferred first. However, when the antegrade passage fails for several reasons, retrograde or less frequently collateral passages are used. Although the collateral passage has serious complications, it can be successfully applied in selected cases and in experienced centers. In this case, the superficial femoral artery occlusion was successfully opened collaterally.
