During the evolution of vascular surgery as a specialty, many conduits have been used to revascularize the lower extremities. Superficial veins and prosthetic materials make up the majority of materials used to bypass diseased segments of native artery. The deep veins of the thigh have also been reported as alternatives for arterial bypass. However, the use of the in situ superficial femoral and popliteal vein bypass has not been reported to our knowledge in current literature. We report a 79-year-old white female with lower extremity rest pain who underwent an in situ femoral popliteal bypass graft for limb salvage.
