Randomized studies evaluating the effect of a vein collar at the distal anastomosis of PTFE-grafts show conflicting results. The study of the Joint Vascular Research Group (JVRG) of UK found improved primary patency while the Scandinavian Miller Collar Study (SCAMICOS) found neither any effect on patency nor on limb salvage after bypass to below-knee arteries. However, the Scandinavian patients were a decade older and predominately female compared to the British patients. Can this explain the conflicting result?
