We have discussed five lesions that are encounted less commonly than the usual occlusive carotid lesion that occurs at the carotid bifurcation namely, high lesions, ulcerative plaques, tortuous carotids, carotid aneurysms, and carotid body tumors. Illustrative cases of these lesions were presented. The diagnostic difficulties related to some of them and the technical aspects of their surgical management were discussed. New techniques for resecting internal carotid aneurysms and carotid body tumors by using autogenous saphenous vein grafts and a shunt were described and illustrated.

    Adequate autogenous vein is often the limiting factor in achieving a successful infrainguinal bypass. Attempts have been made to find alternative conduits; however, these alternatives have demonstrated inferior patency rates. We attempt to show that a split-thickness skin graft conduit provides...
