This case describes the surgical repair of critical limb ischemia in a patient with diffuse multilevel peripheral arterial disease. It demonstrates the value of patient-specific approaches that employ hybrid endovascular and open surgical techniques to reconstruct blood flow in patients who are not ideal candidates for traditional revascularization. We detail a technique that combines endarterectomy, femoropopliteal bypass, angioplasty, and stenting. This case suggests that innovative hybrid approaches can be used to achieve limb salvage in some patients with multilevel peripheral vascular disease who would otherwise undergo primary amputation.
