PURPOSE Thrombosis of popliteal artery aneurysms can produce limb-threatening ischemia. In this setting we have found preoperative thrombolytic therapy to be beneficial. METHODS Thirty-three patients with 54 popliteal artery aneurysms were studied (mean follow-up 62 months). Twenty-one patients (62%) had bilateral popliteal artery aneurysms, and 20(More)
Thirty-three stenotic lesions were found in 30 vein grafts (17 femoral-popliteal, 13 femoral-tibial) 3 months to 8 years postoperatively--77% appeared within 1 year of surgery. Seventeen (57%) of the patients presented with normal distal pulses, and a similar number were asymptomatic. Only eight (26%) presented with unequivocal clinical evidence of graft(More)
Records of 248 patients undergoing aortoiliac reconstruction for occlusive disease between 1957 and 1975 were reviewed. Carotid bruits were ausculted in 35 patients (14%). Five of the patients with bruits also were thought to have symptoms of transient ischemia. Strokes occurred after operation in four of the 248 patients (1.6%). No patient with a(More)
