Abstract

Aim. We report our experience with the use of PTFE trilaminate graft Advanta SST (Atrium Maquet™) versus autologous great saphenous vein (AGSV) and composite PTFE trilaminate-vein graft for below-the-knee (BTK) revascularization. Methods. Data of all consecutive patients who underwent either a BTK or a distal femoro-popliteal bypass from January 2004 to March 2013 using Advanta SST, AGSV or composite Advanta SST-vein graft were retrospectively reviewed and outcomes were analyzed. Kaplan-Meier method with Log-rank test was used to estimate survival, limb salvage and patency rates. Chi- square test was used to evaluate risk factors affecting outcomes. P value
