FRAME, External Support for Lower Limb Autologous Grafts
30 patients will be enrolled in a prospective, multi-center, one-arm study, enrolling patients with claudication and chronic limb ischemia scheduled for lower limb venous bypass grafting on clinical grounds with single segment autologous saphenous vein. Subjects will be followed for 5 years, with follow up visits at 1, 3, 6, 12 months, 2, 3, 4, 5, years post operation.
