OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcome of endovascular profunda femoral artery revascularization (ePFR) with ePFR and concurrent endovascular femoropopliteal revascularization (eFPR). METHODS: A retrospective review of the consecutive patients with PFA and femoropopliteal vaso-occulsive disease who underwent ePFR or ePFR + eFPR for severe limb ischemia was performed. RESULTS: A total of 18 ePFRs and 26 ePFR + eFPRs were performed; 17 (94%) ePFRs and 22 (85%) ePFR + eFPRs were technically successful...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of thrombolysis in the presence of an occluded femoropopliteal synthetic graft. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Over a 3-year period, 46 occluded femoropopliteral grafts were treated with urokinase and reconstruction. The cases were divided into three groups: group 1 (n=25), complete thrombolysis followed by reconstruction or angioplasty or both; group 2 (n=5), complete thrombolysis alone; and group 3 (n=16), failure of thrombolysis requiring reconstruction or leading to amputation...

Vascular grafts may be salvaged with thrombolytic therapy after acute occlusion as an alternative to balloon catheter thrombectomy. From October 1987 to May 1990, 15 arterial bypasses to the lower extremity (infrainguinal saphenous vein [n = 7] or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene [n = 6], and Dacron aortofemoral bifurcation graft limbs [n = 2]) were treated for 30 occulsions with intraarterial urokinase (390,000 IU to 5,808,000 IU) infused from 3 to 40 hours. The origins of 15 graft occlusions were morphologic defects (intimal hyperplasia with anastomotic or conduit stricture), pseudoaneurysm, or progression of disease distal to the graft...

In surgical treatment of patients with arterial occulsion of the lower limbs an autovein was employed as a transplant in 66 patients. In 22 patients reconstructive operation was performed after preliminary lumbar sympathectomy. Restored patency of the operated segment with restoration of foot artery pulsation was noted in 53 patients. Late results were followed up for 1--6 years in 32 patients. Major blood flow was maintained in 24 patients (75%). Other conditions being equal, reconstructive operations yield better results, if lumbar sympathectomy was preliminary performed...
