We would like to report a novel technique in the use of endoscopically retrieved reverse saphenous vein for femoropopliteal bypass grafting. A common mishap encountered while tunneling reversed saphenous vein is avulsion of side branches. At our center, we improvised and used an autoclaved Fogarty catheter case to tunnel the reversed saphenous vein. We found this technique to be safe, cheap, and reproducible even in a low-volume center.
