We report a case of chronic total occlusion of the aorta with critical limb ischemia (CLI) of the lower limbs due to chronic total occlusion (CTO) of infrarenal aorta and extensive bilateral iliac disease. This case was treated by open surgical revascularization, after unsuccessful attempt of percutaneous endovascular stenting treatment.
