[Femoro-distal revascularization with the saphenous vein in critical ischemias. An analysis of the results obtained and the criteria for choosing the most appropriate method].Minerva Cardioangiol. 1996 Mar; 44(3):95-7.MC
Critical ischemia is a pathology which requires the collaboration of a number of specialists and is often burdened by high morbidity and mortality rates. There are several possible therapeutic solutions, although each has its limits. The authors present a series of operated cases and compare the results of two different but alternative surgical methods (in situ and reversed saphena by-pass) depending on the patient's conditions. Perioperative and long-term results were comparable in both groups of patients.
