FARRET NETO, Abdo et al. Anterior tibial artery recanalization through dorsalis pedis artery: a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp. 302-304. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000500016.
The authors report the case of mixed approach for endovascular treatment of occlusive disease of the anterior tibial artery by retrograde pedal artery access where the traditional antegrade approach failed to overcome a segmental occlusion. The technique seems to offer an option for endovascular procedures aimed at treating occlusion of the anterior tibial artery in cases where the conventional antegrade approach demonstrates to be inappropriate.
