Isolated groin infection following crossover femoral bypass is not uncommon, and its management may be challenging, especially in medically high-risk patients. When an in situ replacement is appropriate, using an autologous vein (femoral or saphenous) would be the preferred method; however, this may not always be feasible. The authors used cryopreserved femoral vein grafts for in situ replacement of femorofemoral bypass grafts with excellent results in 3 high-risk patients who developed early graft infections and failed graft preservation attempts. In situ replacement of infected femorofemoral grafts using a cryopreserved femoral vein graft can be considered as a second-line intervention when an adequately sized autologous vein is unavailable or unusable or is not feasible in high-risk patients.
