Abstract

An infection of an axillobifemoral prosthetic graft was treated by partially in situ reconstruction using autologous vein and artery. Autologous material for a new axillofemoral graft was obtained using the superficial femoral vein and the thrombendarterectomised superficial femoral artery of the same extremity. Chronic venous insufficiency did not result. Recurrent stenosis of the arterial autograft required a redo-thrombendarterectomy with patch plasty 17 months postoperatively.
