Critical ischemia is a pathology which requires the collaboration of a number of specialists and is often burdened by high morbidity and mortality rates. There are several possible therapeutic solutions, although each has its limits. The authors present a series of operated cases and compare the results of two different but alternative surgical methods (in situ and reversed saphena bypass) depending on the patient's conditions. Perioperative and long-term results were comparable in both groups of patients.
