A simplified method of performing patch angioplasty for profunda femoris origin stenosis

Eur J Vasc Surg. 1988 Apr;2(2):127-8. doi: 10.1016/s0950-821x(88)80061-6.


A simplified method of performing an autogenous profundoplasty is described using the partially detached and open superficial femoral artery as a patch. This permits better visibility while performing the anastomosis since the superficial femoral artery is no longer obstructing the view, which also allows easy access to any bleeding following clamp removal.
