To the Editor: Pregnancy following aorto-iliac bypass or replacement grafting is uncommon, as most patients requiring this operation are beyond childbearing age. However, conditions may occur at earlier ages that necessitate such a procedure and, as the case described here illustrates, the surgery is no bar to pregnancy.
