[Femoro-distal bypasses with the saphenous vein in situ. Our experience].Minerva Cardioangiol. 1996 Apr; 44(4):167-71.MC
The authors report their experience with the femoral-to-distal in situ saphenous vein bypass. Evaluation of the distal circulation, the adequacy of the saphenous vein, and routine follow-up after bypass, along with the operative procedure and technical problems (A-V fistulas, valvulectomy, etc.) are described. Overall the in situ saphenous vein bypass provides a natural, compliant endothelial-lined conduit that allows an optimal revascularization to below-knee arteries.
