Sprout clump survival, number of living sprouts in a clump, and height and DBH of the dominant sprout in a clump were measured in years 1–5 and 7 after harvest. By(More)

Reported are 97 extensive amputations in 87 patients from 1975 to 1977. Postoperative early mortality was 47% and depended on the disease and the various factors that made amputation necessary. Amputations in chronic occlusive vascular disease without septicemia had a far lower mortality, 10%. Amputations in patients with septicemia resulted in a mortality(More)
In forty patients 41 feet were revascularised by means of distal tibial (the distal 10 cm of the lower leg) (17) or pedal bypasses (24). Angiographically the preoperative state was best defined as a lower leg block (LLB); All three arteries showing occlusions at several levels, leaving only isolated functioning arterial segments in the distal leg or foot(More)
From 1980 to 1985, 210 endarterectomies of the carotid artery were performed in 187 patients (50 female, 127 male). In 55 cases there were asymptomatic filiform stenoses with concomitant high grade stenosis or occlusion of the contralateral artery. 155 stenoses of the carotid artery of mostly the highest degree were symptomatic. Patients were examined by(More)
