Immediate and medium-term results of repeated open interventions in patients with occlusion of autovenous femoro-paplinear bypass


The management of patients with occlusion of the autovenous femoral-popliteal bypass has not yet been determined.

The aim is to analyze the immediate and medium-term results of various surgical strategies in patients with occlusion of autovenous femoral-popliteal bypass.

Material and methods. There are results of treatment of 57 patients, which were operated on for occlusion of autovenous femoral-popliteal bypass. The patients were divided into 2 clinical groups according to the type of repeated surgery performed: 37 patients underwent repeated autovenous femoral-popliteal bypass grafting, they constituted the 1st group; 20 patients underwent endarterectomy from the common femoral artery with profundoplasty; they were included in the 2nd group. The groups did not differ in the incidence of concomitant pathology. The distance of painless walking among patients of the 1st group was 35.95±14.88 m, in the 2nd – 39.50±17.90 m.

Results. The average duration of surgical interventions in the 1st group was 270±26 min, in the 2nd – 210±21 min. Blood loss in the 1st group was 214.86±77.77 ml, in the 2nd – 62.50±15.17 ml (p=0.002). Technical success was achieved in 34 (91.89%) patients of the 1st group and in 17 (85%) patients of the 2nd group. Healing of trophic ulcers in patients after repeated femoropopliteal bypass was observed more often than after femoroprofundoplasty (92.3 vs 14.3%, p=0.001). Thrombosis of the operated segment within the first 12 months after surgical treatment was more often observed in patients of the 1st group (13.5 vs 5%). Minor amputations (at the foot level) during the first 12 months after reoperation were performed in 2 (3.5%) patients.

Conclusion. Rebypass surgery of the hip is characterized by good short and medium term results.
