Saphenous vein In situ bypass

David R. Knighton, Steven M Santilli, David Hunter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Revascularization of the ischemic diabetic extremity presents a significant diagnostic and technical challenge. The in situ saphenous bypass provides a conduit that allows revascularization to arteries at the ankle and proximal foot. Evaluation of the distal circulation, the adequacy of the saphenous vein, and routine follow-up after bypass, along with the operative procedure, are described. Balloon inflow occlusion arteriography, duplex mapping of the saphenous vein, operative technique, and follow-up protocol are discussed.
