ABSTRACT
Our longest applied graft, which was a bypass from the aorta to the femoral artery, is now 18 months. Interestingly enough this man had an above knee amputation on the contralateral side for an occlusion of the popliteal 10 months after the bypass procedure. We acknowledge the fact that we may be premature in predicting the fate, as well as the value of the cutis vascular graft. However, we feel that this vascular prosthesis can serve as an ideal emergency vessel substitute since it is always readily available, for the host serves as his own ‘bank’; it can be made to size at the surgical table; it is accepted tissue, since it is autogenous; and finally it is a ‘live tissue’ as is manifested on histologic study.
