Patients with limb-threatening ischemia and a paucity of ipsilateral greater saphenous vein for conduit represent a challenge for lower extremity revascularization. We present four patients with limited autogenous conduit who underwent hybrid revascularization using the Silverhawk atherectomy device and infrapopliteal artery bypass for limb-threatening ischemia. All patients experienced complete wound healing in early follow-up. Hybrid revascularization appears safe, produces excellent short-term outcomes, and may be appropriate for patients with limited autogenous vein who require lower extremity revascularization.
