The principal methods of reconstructive surgery of the main human blood vessels in the presence of segmentary atherosclerotic occlusions are considered; the chief assumptions made in investigating their mechanical properties are examined. Uniaxial and biaxial loading of the human great saphenous vein has shown that a diseased arterial segment could be replaced by an autogenous resected vein.
