Abstract

Autogenous vein grafts have become the first choice with their positive outcomes in vascular injuries and are quite widely used today. Particularly in the case of size mismatch, spiral saphenous vein grafts prepared from the saphenous veins have had encouraging results. Two cases in which the patients had vascular reconstructions with spiral saphenous vein grafts for a stab wound and gunshot injury are presented in this paper.
