Aorto-illiac bypass graph, also known as aortoiliofermoral reconstruction, is the placement of an artificial graft to bypass a blood clot or artery closure in the iliac arteries.
A common location for blockage of the arteries is at the branching of the aorta into the two large arteries, or iliac arteries, that supply the legs. During the aorto-iliac bypass graph procedure, one end of the artificial graft is fitted into the aorta and the other two ends are fitted into the iliac arteries. Recovery time from this surgery is approximately six weeks.
