Table 1 The indications, limitations and alternatives of the LAx-PF bypass

From: Case report: lateral axillary-profunda femoris artery bypass for acute lower limb ischemia due to thrombosis after bilateral axillofemoral bypass

Indications Limitations Alternatives
Leriche syndrome; and Necessary to establish ananatomical bypass, but not suitable for the axillofemoral bypass or femorofemoral bypass; The subclavian artery to the distal axillary artery must be free from definite stenosis or occlusion; The more proximal inflow, such as the proximal segment axillary artery, the subclavian artery, or the aorta.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms;
Abdominal aortic graft infection;
Axillofemoral bypass or femorofemoral bypass failure The profunda artery is well compensated, as determined by symptoms, signs, or ABI; Establish other outflow, such as reestablished superficial femoral artery, additional femoral popliteal bypass or axillopopliteal bypass.
