Abstract

An increasing attention has been paid to endovascular therapy for lower limb ischemia in patients with Buerger’s disease. However, critical hand ischemia in Buerger’s disease patients has been underappreciated despite a tremendous advancement of endovascular therapy for peripheral arterial disease. Herein, we describe endovascular “hand” salvage with a below-the-elbow intervention.
