Abstract

The transcollateral approach is a contemporary crossing technique for treating infrapopliteal chronic occlusion. However, in the setting of critical limb ischemia with multilevel disease, angiographically occult collateral vessels may be missed as a treatment opportunity. Herein, we report the potential of using occult collateral vessels for transcollateral intervention in infrapopliteal chronic occlusion.
