A patient with critical limb ischemia and severe congestive heart failure who presented with right iliac stenoses and occlusion of the common femoral artery(CFA), deep femoral artery(DFA), superficial femoral artery, popliteal artery and crural arteries is presented. Iliac stenting and ilio-lateral femoral circumflex artery(LFCA) bypass with a reversed saphenous vein graft were successfully performed under regional anesthesia. In a case with CFA and DFA occlusion and well developed LFCA as a collateral circulation, a bypass to the descending branch of LFCA may be considered for limb salvage surgery.
