A comprehensive endovascular skill set is desirable and key to successful intervention in the patient with complex cardiovascular disease. Acute stroke intervention is the next frontier for the endovascular specialist. We report a case of acute stroke intervention in a patient with severe peripheral vascular disease performed by interventional cardiologists with peripheral endovascular skills that clearly demonstrates the new paradigm of global revascularization.
