Our study was aimed at determining advantages of profundoplasty in patients with critical ischaemia of lower limbs in repeat arterial reconstructions. It included a total of 56 patients subjected to redo operations for thrombosis of a femoropopliteal bypass graft. Of these, 29 underwent profundoplasty (group I) and 27 repeat femoropopliteal bypass grafting (group II). Critical ischaemia was relieved in the early postoperative period in 28 (97%) and 24 (89%) patients of group I and II, respectively. The 3-year patency rate after profundoplasty amounted to 100% and after femoropopliteal bypass grafting to 47% (p<0.05). The lower-limb amputation rates over the 3-year period of follow up amounted to 3 (10%) and 11 (41%), p<0.05, respectively. Over the 3-year period of follow up, there was no statistically significant difference in the values of the ankle-brachial index (p>0.05).

KEY WORDS: obliterating atherosclerosis of lower limb arteries, reconstructive operations, thrombosis of the zone of reconstruction, plasty of the deep femoral artery, profundoplasty, femoropopliteal bypass grafting.
