about this presentation

51 year old male with Type 1 Diabetes and a lateral foot ulcer for 4 months. Patient received standard wound care with slow progression of the ulcer and was offered a below knee amputation. Skin perfusion testing showed normal perfusion. CT angiography demonstrated severe stenosis at the origin of the anterior and posterior tibial arteries with variant pedal artery anatomy.

Ulcer healing was achieved 3 months after revascularization.
