Abstract

Exposed or infected peripheral vascular grafts pose a significant challenge to the vascular surgeon. Although graft removal and extraanatomic bypass is feasible in selected circumstances, this procedure is generally not applicable for bypass to the pedal vessels. Preservation of patent grafts is almost always required for limb salvage. We present a case report of an exposed vein graft to the dorsalis pedis artery. We conclude that a local fasciocutaneous flap is an excellent treatment option, and describe the procedure in detail.
