Abstract

Diabetic and nondiabetic vascular diseases cause significant foot problems and it frequently progress to osteomyelitis and amputation. Advances in vascular surgical techniques, including distal arterial bypass via synthetic grafts or autogenous vein grafting have opened the way for higher rate of limb salvage. We have experienced patients with ischemic vascular foot disease and combined skin ulceration and varing degree of soft tissue defect. In three patient with major vessel obstruction, we could preserve limb and avoid major amputation using greater saphenous vein graft with or without microvascular free tissue transfer.
