Iatrogenic vascular injuries can result in claudication and limb length discrepancy in growing children. Traditional reconstruction has been performed with great saphenous vein as a conduit. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy with a symptomatic limb length discrepancy and vascular reconstruction using femoropopliteal vein. The use of deep vein as an autogenous conduit may facilitate reconstruction of iliofemoral arteries in preadolescent children, providing an excellent size match and an efficacious means of restoring normal blood flow.
