Figure 2 (A-D): Long segment occlusion (A,B) of the superficial femoral artery of a 66-year-old male. Multiple attempts to cross the lesion through antegrade approach failed, and therefore a retrograde popliteal arterial puncture was made. The lesion was crossed subintimally and an OUTBACK® catheter was used to reenter the true lumen (C,D). Subsequently an angioplasty resulted in good angiographic results
