Femorotibial vein bypass in a child.


This report details the course and management of a 5-year-old girl with intermittent claudication, a chronic leg ulcer, and discrepancy in leg growth caused by unilateral femoropopliteal arterial occlusive lesions of obscure etiology. Angiographic evaluation, pathologic observations, and surgical management of this child are detailed. A 4-year follow-up has provided gratifying results that justify the surgical approach to this unique patient.
