Infra-Inguinal Bypass Surgery

Amy B. Reed

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Infrainguinal bypass remains a mainstay in dealing with lower extremity ischemia in claudication, rest pain, and tissue loss, many times after failed percutaneous attempts. Autogenous reconstruction remains favored compared to prosthetic bypass secondary to issues with increased risk of infection and diminished patency. Lifelong surveillance of all infrainguinal bypass grafts is critical for success and limb salvage.
