Abstract

We present a case of a 59-year-old man with symptomatic long-segment occlusion of the superficial femoral artery. Subintimal recanalization was initially unsuccessful due to the inability to re-enter the true lumen after crossing the occlusion in the subintimal space. We report, for the first time in Poland, our use of the Outback catheter for a successful intraluminal re-entry. There were no procedure-related complications. We indicate that the Outback catheter can be used safely in case of an unsuccessful conventional re-entry to the true lumen artery. This catheter can allow reduction the time of the procedure and minimize potential complications.
