Summary, in English

The purpose of this report is to describe a minimally invasive alternative endovascular technique for the treatment of chronically occluded stents when it is not possible to cross them endoluminally. A 71-year-old patient with recurrent severe lower limb claudication due to occlusion of a stent placed in the common iliac artery 5 years earlier underwent subintimal recanalization of the stented segment and restenting after failed intraluminal approach. The postoperative computed tomography scan showed that the restented segment was patent with a flattening of the previous stent. Five years postoperatively the patient remains free from symptoms and the recanalized arteries are still patent at ultrasound.
