Spiral saphenous vein graft for major pelvic vessel reconstruction during exenteration surgery.


:This article describes a great saphenous vein spiral graft technique for reconstruction of iliac vessels after en bloc resection during pelvic exenteration. Use of different size syringes as a scaffold allows the surgeon to construct autologous vascular interposition conduits of variable diameter to match the luminal size of the vessel requiring reconstruction. Autologous vascular grafts are preferred in exenteration surgery in which the operative field is commonly contaminated by concomitant bowel resection, which carries an increased risk of graft infection.

  • Iliac Vein Interrogation Augments Venous Ulcer Healing in Patients Who Have Failed Standard Compression Therapy along with Pathological Venous Closure.

    abstract:BACKGROUND:Treatment of venous ulcers is demanding for patients, as well as clinicians, and the investigation of underlying venous hypertension is the cornerstone of therapy. We propose that occult iliac vein stenosis should be ruled out by iliac vein interrogation (IVI) in patients with advanced venous stasis. METHOD...
