However, little is known regarding their long-term results, particularly in developing countries. Herein, we report three cases of bilateral severe iliac artery stenosis presenting with critical limb ischemia. All these patients underwent unilateral iliac artery stenting with femorofemoral crossover grafting. All patients had smooth recovery and demonstrated complete resolution of symptoms. The patients were symptom-free with patent grafts during a mean follow-up of four years. Keywords : Femorofemoral bypass grafting; graft patency; iliac stenosis
