abstract

  • We have presented postoperative and long-term outcomes of IBS in renal transplantation patients. Autogenous bypasses outperform prosthetics with regard to primary assisted patency, secondary patency, and limb salvage. Given the modest survival advantage conferred by renal transplantation, maximum efforts should be made to create bypasses with autogenous conduits when it is feasible. These results should inform the patient's and surgeon's expectations in planning of IBS for these patients.
