Abstract

The article is devoted to analysis of surgical treatment of patients with such a dangerous complication as infection of the vascular prosthesis. The authors have performed 25 operations for substituting the infected prostheses for allografts. In 18 patients the infected prostheses were located in the aorto-iliac segment, in 5 patients in the femoro-popliteal segment, 1 patient had it in the aorta, and 1 in the subclavian segment. The prostheses were removed and a simultaneous revascularization was made. The authors make a conclusion that it is very expedient to use alloprostheses as a protective measure against persistent or recidivating infections. The allografts have both early and long-term resistance to infection.
