However, there have been few published reports comparing the patency and limb salvage of these alternative outflow tracts. In this report, we have examined our experience with the peroneal and dorsalis pedis artery bypasses for limb salvage. METHODS AND MATERIALS During a 19-year period, more than 3,500 infrageniculate reconstructions were performed… CONTINUE READING
