AIM: To illustrate the use of autologous femoral vein for grafting ilio-caval vein defects following abdomino-pelvic tumour resections. METHODS: Case report and literature review. RESULTS: Durable restoration of ilio-caval patency was achieved, with minimal morbidity from graft harvesting. CONCLUSIONS: Autologous femoral vein presents a viable graft option for the immediate reconstruction of large intra-abdominal vein deficits.
