We report the 44-year follow-up of a 9-year-old girl who underwent a saphenous vein interposition graft in 1964 after suffering extensive pelvic trauma with complete disruption of the right common femoral artery. The patient recovered from this injury and experienced no disability or pain until 2008, when she suddenly developed numbness in the right leg. Evaluation at that time showed a new occlusion of the saphenous vein graft, and she underwent uneventful repeat revascularization with autogenous vein. To our knowledge, this 44-year patency is the longest reported for a saphenous vein graft.
