hallo dear friend
i hv studied your case
do you have any wound over leg,or feet
since you have already undergone stent surgery you should investigate for the blood circulation by colour doppler or CT ANGIO
if whole vessel is sclorosed repeat surgery will not prove useful so tou can go for amputation and sympathectomy
but block is at another area then you can re do stenting
