Long-term outcome of aorto-iliac reconstruction for aortic infection using the femoral vein

A retrospective study from the World Journal of Surgery assessed the long-term outcome of up to
16 years of follow-up after aorto-iliac reconstruction with autologous femoral vein (FV) in patients
with aortic infection. The review of 109 pre- and postoperative computed tomography angiograms

(CTAs) of 22 patients demonstrated the FV to be a proper and durable conductor after replacement
of the aorto-iliac segment.
