Do-it-yourself femoropopliteal bypass.

By A. D. Fox, A. Rai, J. S. Budd, M. S. Whiteley and A. H. Chalmers


A 74-year-old male claudicant had undergone operative repair of his bilateral varicose veins 22 years earlier. His records confirmed that on the right side he had only had a saphenofemoral disconnection. Duplex scanning and angiography of his right leg demonstrated an occluded superficial femoral artery (SFA) and a network of channels between the proximal SFA stump and the long saphenous vein (LSV). Distal SFA reconstitution occurred through two distal arteriovenous fistulas. We believe that this is the first case of a spontaneous femorodistal bypass graft secondary to neovascularisation recorded in the literature
