This question is pertaining to Anatomy and Physiology

1) In the surgical procedure called a bypass graft, a vessel is removed from a patient and used to make a vascular bridge that bypasses one of that patient's blocked arteries. A common vessel used for this procedure is the greater saphenous vein. Why do you think a surgeon might use the greater saphenous vein instead of the femoral vein or a large artery?
