Title

Obtaining a superficial femoral artery graft in adolescents and children with the deep femoral artery transposition

Abstract A new technique to obtain a segment of the superficial femoral artery as an arterial conduit in young patients while an unobstructed peripheral blood flow is maintained by superficial femoral artery-deep femoral artery transposition is illustrated with two clinical examples. The explanted arterial autograft requires no replacement by another graft and provides a conduit of up to 10 cm in length. Excellent results were achieved in both patients at 1 year. This technique is recommended instead of saphenous vein conduits in very young patients because of the risk for late vein degeneration.
