We report the case of a 71-year-old man complaining of swollen left limb and progressively worsening pain. He underwent surgery 12 years ago for popliteal artery aneurysm with proximal and distal ligation and venous bypass grafting. The patient was diagnosed as having left peroneal neuropathy caused by a 10.5 cm expanded aneurysmal sac compressing the peroneal nerve in the popliteal fossa. The patient underwent open repair with opening of the aneurysmal sac, removal of the thrombus, and sewing of the left genicular artery responsible for back-bleeding...

BACKGROUND: When the common femoral artery is not accessible for infrainguinal bypass grafting, the profunda femoris artery (PFA) can be a valuable alternative inflow source for distal arterial revascularization. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the results of infrageniculate bypass grafting via the PFA as inflow source for critical limb ischemia. METHODS: Between 1994 and 2016, 68 patients, 51 men of a mean age of 74 years, underwent an infrageniculate arterial bypass grafting for critical limb ischemia, using the PFA as inflow site...

BACKGROUND: Multi-ligament knee injury (MLKI) associated with knee dislocation can result in vascular injury. The purpose of this study was to compare knee function after MLKI between patients with a vascular injury requiring popliteal artery bypass grafting and patients without vascular involvement. Additionally, factors associated with poor knee function in patients who had MLKI with vascular injury were evaluated. METHODS: This retrospective study identified patients with an MLKI between 1992 and 2014...

Peroneal nerve palsy can be caused by various etiology. We report unilateral peroneal nerve palsy after compression stockings application. A 64-year-old man underwent off-pump coronary bypass graft. Surgeon did not use saphenous vein for the bypass graft. Sedation was stopped after 3 h postoperative. After 16 h, for prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis, knee-high elastic stocking was applied. After 1 h, he took off right stocking because of numbness but left stocking was kept. After 24 h postoperative, (8 h after stocking application) patient complained suddenly left foot drop...

BACKGROUND: Elderly patients with critical limb ischemia are increasingly treated through interventional therapy. The outcome of tibial and peroneal bypasses in octogenarians who were unsuitable for endovascular therapy remains unclear. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of all patients who underwent tibial or peroneal bypass surgery in our clinic between October 2007 and April 2015. In Group 1 we included all patients 80 years and older and in group 2 all patients under 80 years...

The small saphenous vein (SSV) is an important graft in limb salvage surgery. It is frequently translocated for bypass surgery. Sometimes, the use of the SSV as an in-situ graft for posterior tibial artery or peroneal artery reconstruction offers the advantages of reduced vein graft injury and improved patency. Recently, saphenous vein mapping through computed tomography (CT) volume rendering technique offers a great quality view to the surgeon. We experienced a patient in whom a CT image with volume rendering technique revealed an aberrant SSV connected with the great saphenous vein at the medial malleolus level...

We evaluated 374 consecutive patients from May 2013 to April 2014 who underwent major cardiac surgery. Each patient had an interview and a neurological clinical examination during the rehabilitation period. Patients with possible peripheral nervous system (PNS) complications underwent further electrodiagnostic tests. Among 374 patients undergoing major heart surgery (coronary artery bypass grafting, valvular heart surgery, ascending aortic aneurysm repair) 23 (6.1 %) developed 34 new PNS complications. We found four brachial plexopathies; four carpal tunnel syndromes; five critical illness neuropathies; three worsening of pre-existing neuropathies; two involvement of X, one of IX and one of XII cranial nerves; three peroneal (at knee), one saphenous, two median (at Struthers ligament), six ulnar (at elbow) mononeuropathies; two meralgia parestheticas...

BACKGROUND: Long-term results of the posterior approach (PA) for the treatment of popliteal artery aneurysms are lacking in the literature. We reviewed our experience during a 13-year period in patients with popliteal artery aneurysms, comparing those treated through a PA with those operated on through a standard medial approach (MA). METHODS: Clinical data of all patients treated between February 1998 and October 2011 were retrospectively reviewed and outcomes analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: In this study we analyzed the outcome of tibial and peroneal venous and heparin-bonded expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (HePTFE) bypasses in diabetics with critical limb ischemia (CLI). We aimed to verify our hypothesis that HePTFE grafts will achieve acceptable 1-year patency and limb salvage results in patients who lack an adequate vein. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis for all diabetics who underwent tibial bypass surgery in our department between October 2007 and October 2012...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular recanalization has become the accepted first-line treatment strategy for most lower extremity arterial occlusions, especially in patients with critical limb ischemia (Rutherford 4-6). Prior endovascular interventions have been described as risk factors for the outcome of subsequent lower extremity bypass surgery. The effect on subsequent tibial and peroneal bypasses is controversial. We analyzed the impact of prior endovascular lower extremity revascularization procedures on the short- and mid-term results of femoro-tibial and femoro-peroneal bypasses...

BACKGROUND: Revascularization alternatives for patients with critical limb ischemia and without adequate autogenous vein remain challenging. We reviewed our experience with the use of arterial homograft as a conduit for limb salvage in patients with limb ischemia and active lower extremity infections. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who underwent open arterial revascularization of the lower extremity with cryopreserved femoral artery homograft for the treatment of symptomatic critical limb ischemia (i...

The most dreaded major donor-site complication of free fibula flap is a foot ischemia, which is fortunately rare. Various authors have discussed the efficacy of the use of preoperative imaging methods including color Doppler, magnetic resonance angiography, and conventional angiography. A 25-year-old man presented with a 10-cm mandibular defect after a facial gunshot injury. Lower extremity color Doppler revealed triphasic peroneal, tibialis anterior, and posterior artery flows. A fibula osteocutaneous flap was harvested, and the mandible was reconstructed...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with critical limb ischemia require infrageniculate bypass with a prosthetic graft due to the limited availability of autogenous vein. Prosthetic grafts have been shown to have inferior patency and subject the patient to increased infection rates when compared to bypass with autogenous conduit for lower extremity revascularization. In an effort to avoid the use of prosthetic material, we evaluated the use of remote superficial femoral artery endarterectomy (RSFAE) with distal autogenous revascularization in patients with critical limb ischemia and limited conduit...

Embolization of coronary artery stents is a rare but well-recognized complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. Although intracardiac stent migration carries a significant risk to the patient, peripheral embolization is largely benign despite carrying a theoretical risk of distal ischemia. Furthermore, stents lost to the periphery are often never found. Here, we describe a case of an embolized stent to the peroneal artery which was accurately located using on-table fluoroscopy and ultrasound duplex...

A 76-year-old man presented with a non-healing ischemic ulceration of the left foot. He had undergone left axillo-femoral bypass surgery 4 years previously. Diagnostic angiography showed total occlusion from the left common iliac to the common femoral artery and the anterior and posterior tibial artery as well as severe stenosis of the superficial femoral and peroneal artery. Because there were no other access sites except for the axillo-femoral bypass graft, we performed endovascular therapy (EVT) by direct puncture of this bypass graft...
