The axillary-femoral bypass is an extra-anatomical arterial reconstruction technique whose indications and complications have been thoroughly discussed in the literature. Shortening or lengthening of the prosthesis (by axillary artery traction or graft angulation, respectively) as a late postoperative complication of the procedure has been described only exceptionally. Here we report a kinking of the prosthesis with a very illustrative figure.
