This would require a re-evaluation first by the vascular surgeon.
A clinical examination.
Then the tests including Doppler Ultrsound of the Arteries of the limb (to determine the flow of blood along with any abnormalities in it).
More sensitive test, the Angiogram. This will give the exact answer regarding the management plan.
This may not necessarily require grafting. May be the surgeon places a sten in the blood vessel and that restores the blood flow.

And if this does not help, then grafting would be required.
I hope this clarifies and answers you.

HiI have some additional information.The aortofemoral bypass graft is an upside down Y. You cannot stent this type of graft.You need to do a graft revision.If you do not have pulses, they will need to do an angiogram and determine which area needs to be redone.Usually they do a femorofemoral bypass.
Thank you for your question.Good luck!
