The Leg Bypass Surgery is used for treating the severe symptomatic Peripheral Artery Disease (PDA) when the risk of losing a leg is involved. The bypass redirects blood through a blood vessel graft in order to avoid the affected vessel. The blood vessel graft can be a natural or artificial vein or artery.
The surgical bypass methods vary depending on the size and location of the affected artery. The Leg Bypass Surgery is used for the Peripheral Arterial Disease (PDA) in patients with disabling intermittent claudication, pain occurring at rest, open sores (ulcers) that don’t heal, gangrene (necrosis of the skin, muscles, bones and nerves in legs and feet).
