At a minimum of one-year follow-up, seven of eight vein grafts (88%) were patent by Doppler and Allen's tests. For the patent grafts, functional results were excellent in four (57%) and improved in three. For the nonpatent graft, the function was not improved. Patent vein grafts restored the pulse volume… CONTINUE READING
