A 78-year-old man on dialysis with a history of femoro-popliteal bypass grafting of his right superficial femoral artery was presented with a recurrence of intermittent claudication. Angiography revealed new heavily calcified stenosis located distal to the anastomosis of the graft. A guide wire was crossed the lesion, however, a balloon catheter could not pass. Rotational atherectomy with Rotablator enabled the balloon to cross the lesion with full dilatation. Due to residual stenosis and dissection, a stent was implanted. Final angiogram showed no residual stenosis with TIMI 3 flow. The patient remained free of symptoms during the 1-year follow-up.
