Although revascularization of a femoropopliteal (CTO) always remains challenging through a retrograde or contralateral crossover approach, we report a case of successful revascularization of a long-segment femoropopliteal CTO through antegrade femoral puncture which stands as the crux of the procedure. In routine peripheral intervention, long-segment femoropopliteal occlusion is usually approached from a contralateral femoral artery or ipsilateral brachial artery, antegrade revascularization of femoropopliteal CTO is not adapted by many in routine practice. Here, we describe the technique and the tips and tricks of antegrade puncture of common femoral artery. We will also discuss the literature review of antegrade technique versus retrograde and crossover technique for revascularization of femoropopliteal CTO which may be useful for budding young interventionists. Our case carries another important learning point about management of popliteal disease where revascularization with a stent is of concern due to high knee joint mobility.
