Figure 1: Directional atherectomy. (a) Patient with rest pain and a highly eccentric stenosis of the P2 segment combined with advanced changes of the lower limb arteries. (b) Hawk One directional atherectomy system in place. (c) Significant debulking of the plaque was achieved by atherectomy only. (d) Protection device at the level of the trifurcation. Please note filling of the basket by debris. No further downward embolization happened. (e) Mild residual stenosis (arrow) at the P2 level with good patency of the popliteal artery
