Abstract A high incidence of dissolution and disruption of infected autogenous vein grafts has been demonstrated. PTFE, on the other hand, has been shown to maintain its structural integrity in the presence of well-entrenched infection, with a relatively small incidence of anastomotic disruption related to host artery necrosis. In addition, PTFE performed as well as autogenous vein when antibiotics were administered. Therefore, PTFE graft material is advocated for controlled clinical trials in patients with contaminated vascular injuries.
