INTRODUCTION: We report a two centre experience with a depopulated ureteric xenograft (SGVG 100), CryoLife Inc., GA, USA) for femoropopliteal revascularization in 12 patients with chronic critical limb ischemia. REPORT: Between 7 days and 18 months after implantation, 10 of 12 patients (1 lost to follow-up) had the graft explanted due to aneurysmal enlargement. At 5 years, only one graft was still patent and showed moderate signs of enlargement. CONCLUSION: The SGVG 100 is not a safe conduit for femoropopliteal bypass surgery.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: We report a two centre experience with a depopulated ureteric xenograft (SGVG 100), CryoLife Inc., GA, USA) for femoropopliteal revascularization in 12 patients with chronic critical limb ischemia. REPORT: Between 7 days and 18 months after implantation, 10 of 12 patients (1 lost to follow-up) had the graft explanted due to aneurysmal enlargement. At 5 years, only one graft was still patent and showed moderate signs of enlargement. CONCLUSION: The SGVG 100 is not a safe conduit for femoropopliteal bypass surgery.
