A retrospective study of 34 patients with 29 autologous vein femoropopliteal and 8 femorotibial bypasses was conducted, examining the correlation of angiographic runoff and non-invasive flow determinants as prognostic indicators of early graft occlusion of lower limb bypass grafts. The followup period was 3-27 months, with a mean of 5.8 months. Graft patency and improvement in presenting symptoms were unrelated to preoperative ankle systolic pressure indices. Preoperative and postoperative flow… CONTINUE READING
