PMID:  9458034     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors present a case of arterial jump graft using a number 9 Goretex prosthesis (FEP ringed vascular graft; W.I. Gore Associates Inc.-Delaware, Flagstaff, AZ) with an excellent outcome 3 years after the transplant. The prosthesis was necessary because of the impossibility of using the donor iliac arterial grafts due to the presence of widespread atherosclerotic damage.
