Radiation arteritis is a rare cause of lower extremity peripheral arterial occlusive disease, and has been traditionally treated with open interventions. There have been only a few reported cases of endovascular interventions for this disease. Previous reports described endovascular treatment in the iliac and common femoral regions, but intervention in the superficial femoral artery have not been described. Described here is a case of acute lower extremity ischemia caused by remote radiation arteritis of the superficial femoral artery, which was successfully treated by percutaneous endovascular technique.
