The crossover femoro-femoral bypass, classically used for the treatment of unilateral iliac arterial obstruction, has recently become an integral part of aorto-uni-iliac endovascular aneurysm repair. We therefore, reconsider the therapeutic problems related to thrombosis and in particular to infection of the femoro-femoral prosthesis, when many attempts have been made to preserve the bypass and treat the infection. Showing a case treated and well eight months later, we put forward the old technique of crossover ilio-iliac bypass, followed by the removal of the infected femoro-femoral graft. In our opinion, this technique circumvents the need for autologous tissue and allows for the use of prosthetics in a new, sterile, uncontaminated field. As this approach for these cases has so far not been reported in the literature, further cases and long-term follow-up are needed.
