Attention is called to the facility with which the greater saphenous vein may be utilized for intravenous alimentation under normal and abnormal circumstances. Being mindful of this approach to the venous system may at some time save a human life.

    Occlusion of an infrainguinal sapheuous vein bypass presents an unresolved problem of further treatment in patients with threatened limbs. The implantation of alloplastic grafts is an attempt to possibly avoid amputation. The authors report 56 patients who were treated by secondary alloplastic...

    Anatomic and histologic studies of vein valves were made on 50 adult cadavers (100 lower extremities). In the deep and superficial venous trunks, big valves were found mostly with two cuspids. At the inlets of their branches, small valves monocuspid in shape were commonly found. There was no...

    Primary venous aneurysms of the proximal saphenous vein are uncommon. They are most frequently seen in patients referred for evaluation and treatment of an inguinal or femoral hernia. Since 1992 five patients with a proximal saphenous venous aneurysm were referred for evaluation and treatment of...

    Personal experiences with femoropopliteal and tibial artery bypasses to save limbs are reviewed. There were 315 consecutive bypass procedures in 249 patients over a period of 5 years and 6 months. Femoropopliteal bypasses were done with autogenous greater saphenous vein grafts in 102 cases and...

    Background: Failure to disconnect the saphenopopliteal junction (SPJ) can occur in spite of duplex marking prior to operation indicating that more information on the short saphenous vein (SSV) termination in addition to the duplex mark is necessary to improve operative outcomes. The aim of this...

    Patients who require bypass grafts to the distal vessels of the lower extremity represent a significant problem if autogenous saphenous vein is not available, since saphenous vein has a higher patency rate than any other prosthetic material for distal bypasses. Presented here are two case...
