In the past, the reduced availability and problems with the preservation/storage limited the use of cryopreserved /defrosted arteries (cryografts) in lower limb revascularization procedures. However, the recent development of cryopreservation techniques enhanced cryografts availability and value, and renewed the interest in their use as vascular substitutes. Anyway, some issues related with the cryografts properties and with their usefulness remain to be clarified.
