In three cases we have used a retrosternal and extraperitoneal approach to revascularize the lower extremities with a subclavian-femoral artery bypass. This technique is as easy technically as the conventional subcutaneous axillofemoral bypass and has the advantage of avoiding extrinsic compression, thus improving long-term patency.
