Peripheral vascular disease-related occlusions of the arteries are complex lesions that can be treated surgically or through endovascular means in symptomatic patients. In this case report, we describe two interesting cases of popliteal occlusion that were revascularised using advanced endovascular techniques to salvage the limb. The first case was a chronic popliteal artery occlusion that required atypical arterial access along with embolisation due to earlier attempted intervention to revascularise the artery. The second case was an acute embolic occlusion that was excluded from the circulation primarily rather than through the typical approach of thrombolysis or mechanical thrombectomy.
