Intimal Breakdown Causing Failure of Human Umbilical Vein Graft

Intimal Breakdown Causing Failure of Human Umbilical Vein Graft Abstract • Early graft failure secondary to intimal breakdown with subsequent hemorrhage into and dissection of the wall of a modified human umbilical cord vein allograft occurred. Early recognition and immediate graft replacement will undoubtedly minimize further morbidity to the patient. To our knowledge, this is the first case of early graft failure from this cause described in the literature. (Arch Surg 116:230-231, 1981) References 1.

Abstract

Abstract • Early graft failure secondary to intimal breakdown with subsequent hemorrhage into and dissection of the wall of a modified human umbilical cord vein allograft occurred. Early recognition and immediate graft replacement will undoubtedly minimize further morbidity to the patient. To our knowledge, this is the first case of early graft failure from this cause described in the literature. (Arch Surg 116:230-231, 1981) References 1.
