Covered Stents and Endoluminal Bypasses

  • M. van Sambeek


A 67-year-old man presented in the outpatient clinic with complaints of the right leg. For 11 months, the complaints had been progressive. At the time of presentation, pain was occurring in the calf of the right leg after a walking distance of 75 m. The pain disappeared relatively quickly after stopping walking. There were few or no complaints of the left leg. There was no rest pain or night pain.
