An operative procedure whereby diseased segments of carotid arteries are excised and replaced with reinforced vein grafts is described. The superficial femoral vein covered with a crimped Teflon tube containing multiple perforations is used. In experimental work on canine carotid arteries, using a Teflon mesh cover for reinforcement, grafts found patent at five weeks remained open thereafter. The crimped Teflon tube cover is expected to minimize the danger of early thrombosis by virtue of its increased resistance to compression and also avoid danger of dilation.

    Cutaneous tissue loss in patients with lesions on the arterial axes remains difficult to treat. Currently, combined surgery associating distal bypass and free flap seems to be the technique that yields the best results. The hemodynamic advantages of this technique, recently demonstrated, are the...
