Femoral Bypass Grafts Procedure
Femoral Bypass Grafts procedure restores the inflow to the legs. Ilio-femoral bypass grafts originate from the iliac arteries in the pelvis and take blood to the femoral arteries in the groins. These can be useful if there is enough normal iliac artery in the pelvis.
The common theme with this operation is that they restore good blood flow to the femoral artery at the top of the leg in the groin region. Restoring the inflow to normal levels is often all that is required in many patients, even if there is disease in the arteries further down the leg. The improvement in inflow alone can be enough to permit healing or reduce symptoms to a more bearable level.
