Infrapopliteal arterial bypass for limb salvage: increased patency and utilization of the saphenous vein used "in situ".


A prospective study of "in situ" saphenous vein has been made to determine its patency and utilization when used for arterial bypass distal to the popliteal artery. The valvular obstructions to arterial flow were removed by the method of valve incision developed by the authors. Of 316 consecutive "in situ" bypass procedures, 133 attempts were made to… (More)
