Two female patients, 63 and 78 years of age, underwent femoropopliteal bypass with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) graft and distal vein cuff. They developed graft occlusion due to false aneurysm at the site of vein cuff during one and eight weeks after surgery, respectively. Improper suture technique or weak vein wall might lead to suture disruption leading to false aneurysm as presented in this article.
