This week’s Modern Vascular featured case comes from Dr. Ryan Jean-Baptiste, MD, Board Certified Vascular & Interventional Radiologist for Modern Vascular in Louisville, KY.

Overview

This case is about a 67-year-old woman with DM2 A1C 6.5%, HLD, HTN presents with severe numbness and tingling in the feet with restless leg syndrome and cold feet at night. No history of non-healing foot wounds. The patient can’t sleep and has trouble walking because she “can’t feel the ground”. 

 

Technical Challenges: The patient had a single vessel runoff to the ankle via the peroneal artery. Her entire foot was being perfused by dominant anterior and posterior collaterals. 

 

The patient’s anterior, and posterior collateral branches and pedal loop were treated with laser atherectomy followed by balloon angioplasty. 

 

The patient’s symptoms were completely resolved. She was able to resume her normal activity and according to the patient “I gave her her life back”.
