Patient was at risk of losing employment - patient works in a Walmart warehouse and could not walk quickly or far enough. Patient did not want another open procedure. Endovascular repair was accomplished in 60 minutes using atherectomy and angioplasty. Patient returned to work the next day symptom free. In addition, the patients rest pain and night resolved.
