Infrapopliteal occlusion is uncommon after blunt trauma, and limb salvage after delayed diagnosis is even rarer. We present the case of a 56-year-old man who had complex lower leg orthopedic fractures along with a reportedly normal pulse examination with an 11-day diagnostic delay of limb-threatening ischemia requiring distal revascularization. This case illustrates an incidence of delayed infrapopliteal three-vessel occlusion with successful revascularization and subsequent endovascular management to maintain patency. We describe the workup and treatment of delayed infrapopliteal occlusion and a review of the current literature on this topic.
