      • 1.
        1. A comparative evaluation of autogenous vein bypass graft and endarterectomy in revascularization of the lower extremity is presented in a series of 80 patients.
      • 2.
        2. Sixty venous autografts followed for an average of 16 months show a patency rate of 80 percent (48 patent).
      • 3.
        3. Twenty endarterectomies, both short and long, followed a similar length of time reveal a success rate of 55 percent (11).
      • 4.
        4. The indications for each type of procedure are given along with our reasons for preferring the autogenous vein bypass graft.
