Project Description

This illustration was created as one of the figures accompanying a Clinical Practice article on Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Panel A shows a leg with severe infrainguinal arterial occlusive disease and presence of multifocal stenoses and occlusions. A single-segment great saphenous vein bypass (proximal superficial femoral artery to distal posterior tibial artery) circumvents these stenoses and occlusions. Panel B shows a wire (delivered through a sheath) that has successfully crossed the multiple stenoses and occlusions. Insets show the deployment of a stent in the superficial femoral artery and balloon angioplasty of the posterior tibial artery.
