    Great presentation, interesting case, thank you very much!

    Thank you for the presentation Professor. Do you ever prefer bovine pericardium patch over Dacron?

    Thank you, Dr. Dr. Georgakarakos for your comment. I have no personal experience with bovine pericardium but a long positive experience with Dacron patch. Therefore I have not changed my strategy. Until 1997 I have used autologous vein as patch material. However, by Duplex US I found increased dilatation of the treated segment sometimes also with parietal thrombus load. This is the reason why I switched to alloplastic material. For elongated ICA our preferred technique is the eversion. For the next weeks we are preparing a video.
    In case you have alternatives please feel free to show your own experience.
    Warm regards
