    66-year-old white male, former smoker, with a history of femoral artery stent a plaque removal in 2017 (see picture), triple bypass 2019 (at that time there was no high grade carotid stenosis), diabetes significant for SNPDR OD and PDR OS (NVD). He underwent PRP OS and two months later developed a vitreous hemorrhage and had a PPV OS. Early in the post-operative period vision dropped to LP due to acute CRAO with retinal embolus present. He was found to have progressed to high grade carotid stenosis (versus imaging 6 months ago) and a left carotid endarterectomy was performed . He had a picture of this plaque, and after I asked to use it for image bank, he also showed me this older picture of his femoral plaque.
