Abstract

The single-segment great saphenous vein continues to be a conduit of choice for lower extremity arterial bypass. In patients without an adequate continuous segment of great saphenous vein, a spliced vein graft may be used as an alternative. Creating a spliced vein conduit can be technically challenging and time consuming. We present a technique of creating a spliced vein conduit by using a microvascular anastomotic coupler.
