Aortobifemoral bypass is a durable arterial reconstruction with well-defined failure modes. Management of graft limb thrombosis requires restoration of inflow and correction of any causative outflow lesions. Successful, minimally invasive inflow restoration with catheter thrombectomy can become problematic if assessment of technical adequacy is deficient or reveals causal lesions within the graft body. We describe a case illustrating the potential shortfall of retrograde graft limb completion angiography in depicting neointimal flaps, the benefit of antegrade angiography in depicting these flaps, and a novel utilization of a standard endovascular method to correct flaps that involve the graft body.
