Abstract

In the treatment of Buerger's disease, bypass surgery with the use of an autologous vein has served as a treatment option in cases in which distal target vessel has been available. However, failed bypass occlusion can result in a devastating clinical scenario. Herein, we report a successful endovascular revascularization of failed distal bypass graft as a last resort for a patient with Burger's disease with ischemic rest pain and extensive tissue loss.
