Abstract

The ideal graft requires acceptable size, less tissue toxicity, resistance to infection, and long-term durability. Great saphenous veins are gaining popularity as acceptable graft conduits, but they require time to grow in caliber. We report 2 cases of graft bypass and reconstruction using superficial femoral veins to acheive immediate high-flow patency.
