Answer

For occlusion of the superficial femoral vein, the Husni bypass, described by Warren in 1954 and Husni in 1983, [36] may be considered. In this procedure, the ipsilateral GSV is harvested and used as an in-situ popliteal-femoral vein bypass. Because of its high failure rate (approximately 40%), the Husni bypass is performed infrequently. A minimally invasive technique using stents has been described. [37]
