Abstract

Peripheral artery disease is a condition that occurs due to narrowing or occlusion of arterial lumen usually secondary to atherosclerosis. Endovascular treatments are minimally invasive procedures that have become popular for recanalization of such calcified/sclerosed arteries. However, heavily calcified arteries make these procedures challenging and are more prone to complications like balloon rupture and bleeding. Herein, we report a novel case of rupture of superficial femoral artery and its management using self-expanding Supera stent.
