Abstract

Reconstructive vascular surgery has become ordinary practice in vascular surgery. As surgical techniques have matured and as graft materials have improved, arterial grafting has become a frequently performed and generally successful operation. Despite the broad experience and the high degree of success, many problems still remain; in particular, the mechanism of formation of the atherosclerotic lesions and the behaviour of the vascular flow after graft implantation.
