In brief: Multiple

Multiple but manageable.
The surgical risks are bleeding, infection, heart attack, stroke, and death. All are relatively low. The post surgical issues are graft closure, infection, limb loss, and death. This is not a comprehensive list. Talk to you doctor or vascular surgeon about your concerns.
