An iliac stenosis causing a pressure gradient of 70 mm Hg proximal to repair of a traumatically divided superficial femoral artery was relieved by per-cutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty (PTA). Though the magnitude of the accompanying crush injury led to massive muscle necrosis and ultimately necessitated mid-thigh amputation, the arterial repair remained patent.
