The use of transcutaneous oxygen tension (TCpO2) measurements to objectively and noninvasively diagnose peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) and to aid in the planning of vascular surgery was investigated. Thirty-two normal subjects and 100 patients with PAOD were studied. TCpO2 values decreased with age; when normalized by measurements on the(More)
We examined 188 failed femoropopliteal grafts during a 16-year period to evaluate the clinical consequences of graft failure and success of secondary revascularization procedures. In limbs with grafts placed for claudication, conditions of 9% with failed grafts remained improved despite graft occlusion, 67% returned to preoperative status, and 24% showed(More)
A 16 year review of femoropopliteal bypass grafts identified five factors with significant influence on long term patency. Most important was the nature of the graft itself, with vein grafts having superior long term performance as compared to a variety of prosthetic grafts. Arteriographic runoff, indications for operation, site of the distal anastomosis(More)
We have compared our early and late experience utilizing in situ saphenous vein bypass graft for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease in 54 patients who underwent in situ femoral to popliteal and distal bypass grafts between July of 1983 and February 1985. There were 3 femoral to above-knee popliteal bypasses, 27 femoral to below-knee popliteal bypass(More)
