Presented is the use of an autogenous arterial T graft for the salvage of a thrombosed arterial end-to-side anastomosis. The T-graft concept also offers the possibility of replacing a segment of artery in patients with arterial vessel wall defects, stenosis, obliteration, or disease during free latissimus dorsi or scapular flap transfer. The arterial T graft is harvested from the axilla and consists of segments of the subscapular, circumflex scapular, and thoracodorsal arteries. The large diameter of these vessels offers a good match with the arteries of the lower leg and forearm. The arterial Y graft consists of the same arteries and is used as an interpositional graft to revascularize two distal vessels from one proximal vessel.

Abstract

Presented is the use of an autogenous arterial T graft for the salvage of a thrombosed arterial end-to-side anastomosis. The T-graft concept also offers the possibility of replacing a segment of artery in patients with arterial vessel wall defects, stenosis, obliteration, or disease during free latissimus dorsi or scapular flap transfer. The arterial T graft is harvested from the axilla and consists of segments of the subscapular, circumflex scapular, and thoracodorsal arteries. The large diameter of these vessels offers a good match with the arteries of the lower leg and forearm. The arterial Y graft consists of the same arteries and is used as an interpositional graft to revascularize two distal vessels from one proximal vessel.
