Abstract We describe a case of a patient who had a ruptured aorta repaired by femorofemoral bypass with an interposition graft and subsequently had a graft infection. the patient was taken to operation and the old graft was removed. It was replaced by a spiral great saphenous vein graft. the patient has been followed up for 36 months with computed tomographic scanning, which has shown that the vein graft has not dilated.
