Arterial thrombosis bypass surgery. Computed tomography (CT) scan of a section through the pelvic region of a 65-year-old patient following femo-femoral crossover bypass surgery to treat thrombosis (blood clot formation) of the right internal iliac artery. Here, the blood clot (thrombus) has become large enough to block the artery. This surgery bypasses the blocked portion of the artery by inserting a synthetic artificial artery (white, top) that connects the left and right femoral arteries in each side of the groin.
