The Aortofemoral Bifurcation Graft: A Useful Extension

The Aortofemoral Bifurcation Graft: A Useful Extension Abstract Twelve patients suffering aortoiliac occlusive disease and superficial femoral artery occlusion have undergone placement of modified aortobifemoral Dacron grafts. The modification consisted of a short Dacron tube (5 cm in length and 8 mm in diameter) sutured to the limb of the bifurcation graft, 2 cm beneath the inguinal ligament. Seven patients have subsequently required unilateral femoropopliteal bypasses to relieve their continuing claudication. The proximal anastomosis of the femoropopliteal bypass was made between a segment of saphenous vein and the previously placed Dacron extension graft. The primary advantage of this procedure is a marked reduction in the dissection needed at the groin level. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Surgery American Medical Association

Abstract

Abstract Twelve patients suffering aortoiliac occlusive disease and superficial femoral artery occlusion have undergone placement of modified aortobifemoral Dacron grafts. The modification consisted of a short Dacron tube (5 cm in length and 8 mm in diameter) sutured to the limb of the bifurcation graft, 2 cm beneath the inguinal ligament. Seven patients have subsequently required unilateral femoropopliteal bypasses to relieve their continuing claudication. The proximal anastomosis of the femoropopliteal bypass was made between a segment of saphenous vein and the previously placed Dacron extension graft. The primary advantage of this procedure is a marked reduction in the dissection needed at the groin level.
