Abstract

A patient who presented with total occlusion of the right common femoral artery, superficial femoral artery and popliteal artery is reported. Ilio-deep femoral and deep femoroposterior tibial bypass with an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene graft and an in situ saphenous vein graft, respectively, was successfully performed. A simple and reproducible technique for crural bypass in patients whose common and superficial femoral arteries are unavailable as inflow and outflow sites is presented.
