Open endarterectomy can be used as an alternative treatment method in patients with peripheral artery disease accompanied by tissue loss and infection in case of an absent saphenous vein. We believe that vascular surgeons should keep in mind these methods for use in appropriate patients, even if these methods have been overshadowed by the growing endovascular techniques. In this article, we report a 67-year-old male case with complete open endarterectomy of superficial femoral artery which we performed.
