A 64-year old diabetic male presenting with critical limb ischemia was treated with percutaneous angioplasty for occlusion of the infragenicular popliteal artery and crural vessels. Directional atherectomy was uncommonly used in the false lumen created by following subintimal angioplasty of the infrapopliteal vessels for re-access into the true lumen. The positive clinical and angiographic results indicate that atherectomy can be considered a useful tool for rescue interventions to reopen large side branches unintentionally occluded during subintimal angioplasty.
