Abstract

Infection after vascular operations, particularly after synthetic prosthetic graft implantation, remains a serious complication of reconstructive vascular surgery. In this paper there are presented two cases of bifurcated graft infection limited to the distal part of one of the branches. Because of the unsatisfactory results of conventional treatment, the patients underwent in situ replacement of the infected prosthesis with an arterial homograft. The postoperative check-up revealed the complete remission of infection.
