Open Revascularization

What is Open Revascularization?

Open revascularization means placing a graft (synthetic/vein) to bypass a blocked vessel and revascularize a threatened extremity. At Core Vascular Services, open surgical bypass is reserved for patients who are not candidates for endovascular interventions. The open surgical bypasses include but are not limited to:

  • Open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

  • Aorto-bifemoral bypass

    surgical procedure in which the surgeon uses a graft – either a blood vessel from another part of the body or one made of synthetic fabric – to bypass a blockage and restore blood flow to a blocked abdominal aorta. Typically requires a hospital stay of five to seven days.

  • Axillo-bifemoral artery bypass

  • Femoral-femoral bypass

    surgical procedure in which a graft is inserted to bypass the blocked area of the femoral artery in the thigh or groin to restore normal blood flow. Typically requires a hospital stay of two to three days.

  • Femoral-popliteal bypass / distal artery bypass

    surgical procedure to bypass a blockage in the popliteal artery near the knee, using either a vein from another part of the body or a synthetic graft. A hospital stay of two to three days is usually necessary.

  • AV graft placement/AV fistula creation

  • Subclavian-carotid bypass
