BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to answer the question if the in situ technique in infrainguinal arterial reconstruction is better than the non reversed one in long-term follow-up. METHODS: Patients were included in a prospective study at operation. 387 infrainguinal arterial reconstructions in 367 patients performed from 10-88 to 12-98 were retrospectively analysed. RESULTS: 280 non-reversed and 107 in situ bypass procedures were performed. Primary patency rates at 60 months were 63.3% for non-reversed and 57.9% for in situ grafts (p=n.s.). Primary assisted patency rates were 81.8% and 84.5% respectively (p=n.s.). Limb salvage rate was not different in either group. The 30-day mortality was 1.9% in the in situ group and 0.7% in the non-reversed group (p=n.s.). CONCLUSIONS: There is no difference in outcome between in situ and non-reversed vein grafting. Absence of statistical difference between the two procedures may be mainly due to the routine use of angioscopic quality control.
