Long-term outcome of repeat operations in 118 patients with aorto-femoral graft occlusions and recurrent limb critical ischemia were compared corresponding to the variant of distal anastomoses. In early postoperative period limbs were salvaged in total 88.4% of patients, perioperative mortality was 2.5%. Five-year survival after repeat operation was 81.2%. The patency of reconstructed aorto-femoral grafts was the worst in patients with plasty of distal anastomosis without its repositioning: till the fifth year all 100% of grafts were thrombosed, limbs were salvaged in 27.4%. In cases of open reconstruction and distal end-to-side anastomosis repositioning during the first 3 years graft patency was significantly higher, but till the fifth year all grafts were thrombosed, though the rate of limb salvage was 57.3%. The best rate of graft patency was achieved after resection and plasty of distal anastomosis – 73.5% till the fifth year postoperatively; limb salvage rate was 79.6%. Graft patency was little worse after open desobliteration of distal anastomosis region with its consecutive end-to-end repositioning: in 3 years the rate of graft patency began to decrease and comprised 27.2% in 5 years, limb salvage being 77.8%.

KEY WORDS: aorto-femoral graft occlusion, repeat surgery, lower limb critical ischemia.
