Vascular operations have been routinely performed in many center so adequate vein can not be obtained due to previous vascular operations in repeated operations. Composite grafts has been used in many center in limited vein conditions. Good results have been obtained by composite grafts at femora-below knee popliteal artery bypass operations. We have used old and occluded vascular prosthesis as a inflow artery in this case. (Turkish J Vasc Surg 2004;13(2): 23-27) Keywords : Composite graft, below knee bypass, prosthetic graft
