The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery
A VegetoE Malan


The Authors propose using of homologous saphenous vein grafts, coming from a normal saphenectomy by stripping in patients affected by primary varicose veins. The graft is preserved in a particular solution at 4 degrees C in a normal refrigerator and transplanted in uremic patients, which have no more vessels suitable for creating a conventional arteriovenous fistula.
