Technological advances in artificial blood vessels used in arterial reconstructive surgery have contributed significantly to the development of this field. The 5-year cumulative patency rate of femoropopliteal bypass using knitted Dacron grafts at Keio University Hospital is over 80% (1). This rate is comparable with the results of femoropopliteal bypass surgery using autovein grafts (2, 3, 4). Therefore, we usually perform femoropopliteal bypass using a knitted Dacron graft.
