Arterial bypass grafting to vessels below the popliteal trifurcation has been shown to be a valuable technique. Not only are patency rates high, but adequate revascularization of the limb is readily accomplished. Salvage of ischemic limbs via grafts as far distal as the dorsalis pedis artery is possible. Thus, an attempt at infrapopliteal bypass grafting seems a reasonable alternative to amputation of the severely ischemic leg.
