METZGER, Patrick Bastos et al. Aorto biiliac bypass with superficial femoral vein: an option in aortic grafts and endografts infection - a case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.2, pp. 160-164. ISSN 1677-5449. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000200011.
One of the most feared complications in vascular surgery is the infection of synthetic graft. It affects 2% of conventional surgery procedures and about 0.3 to 6% of endovascular procedures. We report the case of a patient treated for abdominal aortic aneurysm with both methods; after six years, this patient had the prosthesis removed because of infection. Bilateral superficial femoral vein were used as substitute with success.
