Abstract

The authors present their technique for treating digital ischemia using a radial-to-digital artery bypass graft performed in a bloodless field under tourniquet with the use of a microscope. The outcomes in 6 patients were resolution of fingertip ulcers, avoidance of more proximal amputations, and elimination of ischemic pain.
