Combined lesions of bone and blood vessels require a high degree of diagnostic skill and of therapeutic care (routine clinical examination of the vascular status and if necessary angiography). From a therapeutic point of view, all major vascular lesions proximal to the knee or elbow should have vascular continuity restored (artery and vein). Primary(More)
The high operative mortality (80–90%) in patients with acute superior mesenteric artery occlusion is caused mainly by the short ischemic tolerance time and the delay in diagnosis. These facts justify any efforts at earlier diagnosis (aortography or exploratory laparotomy in all suspicious cases). Mesenteric arterial embolectomy should be included in the(More)
Between 1970 and 1976 we performed 79 operations on 61 patients with tortuosity (type I = 12.7 %), coiling (type II = 20.2 %) and kinking (type III = 67.1 %) of the internal carotid artery. Operation (resection and reinsertion) was required in type I if a concomitant arteriosclerotic stenosis was present (combined stenosis in 39.2 %!) and in types II and(More)
In the last 20 years the principles of reconstructive vascular surgery were applied to nearly all vascular areas of the human body. The interventions for arterial occlusive diseases represent the most importance challenge for this youngest discipline of surgery. As a result the frequency of limb amputations could be remarkably reduced by ca. 50%.(More)
Follow-up of 798 patients by Duplex scanning or digital venous angiography 6 months to 13 years after carotid endarterectomy revealed a recurrent stenosis rate of 3.4%. The incidence of the recurrent lesions showed a clear correlation with the operative technique: after closure of the arteriotomy directly (continuous suture) or with a vein patch (303 pat.)(More)
Revascularization of the aortoiliac segment alone, in combination with profundaplasty and lumbar sympathectomy (triad procedure) is a simpler and shorter procedure than the previously performed total correction of both segments. The triad procedure shows better results in cumulative patency (life table analysis) and lowers frequency of reoperation.(More)
