PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to present the use of superficial femoral vein (SFV) as an arterial bypass graft when ipsilateral saphenous vein is inadequate. METHODS Data collected prospectively were reviewed on 24 patients (25 limbs) who had an arterial bypass with SFV performed by the authors between January 1, 1988, and December 31, 1991. Many(More)
PURPOSE To present the use of sartorius myoplasty (SM) and superficial femoral vein (SFV) in a graft-sparing approach to vascular graft infection. METHODS Twenty-five patients were treated for Szilagyi grade III groin infections during the last 10 years. Fifteen presented early (E), mean 2 months; 10 late (L), mean 6.5 years. Bacteria E/L: Staphylococcus(More)
Purpose: This study examined the aortic aneurysm patient population in a Canadian tertiary care centre. Methods: All patients who came to our office for assessment of their aneurysm between 1994 through to March 2008 were evaluated. Results: A total of 1045 patients were evaluated (828 male, 198 female). Of these, 399 underwent open repair (38.18%), 120(More)
This study describes the results of a procedure for removing the infected aortofemoral graft using a two-stage procedure with a delay between the stages. The objective was to lessen the morbidity and mortality associated with removing an infected graft through a single operation. Eight consecutive patients were treated in this manner over a 6-year span. The(More)
This report describes exploration of the proximal anterior tibial artery by extension of the standard below-knee approach to the popliteal artery. The anterior tibial artery is "poplitealized," giving excellent access to perform an anastomosis. The proximal medial approach depends on precise arteriography and is particularly suited to the in situ saphenous(More)
Brachial vein has been overlooked as a conduit for arterial bypass. It can be harvested with very little morbidity. A deep incision placed on the medial aspect of the upper arm allows exposure of the brachial and basilic veins, giving access to vein of adequate length and diameter for many applications. The medical deep veins of the upper arm are usually(More)
PURPOSE Aortoiliac occlusive disease may preclude retrograde thoracic endovascular aortic repair. This study evaluated the physiologic and anatomic feasibility of introducing an aortic endograft in an antegrade manner into the descending thoracic aorta of a pig through the left ventricular apex. METHODS Twelve adult pigs were to undergo antegrade(More)
This study assesses the patency of superficial femoral vein used as a crossover femoral artery bypass conduit in patients presenting either with localized groin sepsis, generalized sepsis or in patients with occluded or heavily diseased superficial femoral artery outflow. Twenty patients were followed prospectively with femoral crossover grafts constructed(More)
PURPOSE This report describes surgical access to occluded vein grafts for thrombolysis by direct cutdown where indirect angiographic techniques have failed. METHOD A sheath is introduced directly into the proximal vein graft. Distal thrombus is lysed following standard protocol. The residual thrombus at the origin of the graft is removed surgically, and(More)
