72-year-old male with past medical history of DMII with retinopathy and vision loss, HTN and ESRD on hemodialysis. He presents with a non-healing ulcer of the right medial first metatarsal.

Endovascular recanalization of the pedal loop was performed with subsequent laser atherectomy and angioplasty. Post-intervention angiography demonstrated patency of the distal dorsalis pedis artery, pedal arch, lateral plantar artery and common plantar artery.
