A retrospective review was done of all patients undergoing surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) on whom coagulation studies were obtained. Those patients with laboratory documented disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) were selected and their clinical records reviewed. This included 7 patients studied in the periods 1964-1965 and(More)
One hundred six patients who underwent a total of 141 operations, on 156 limbs for peripheral arterial emboli from 1964 to 1979 were studied. The average age of the patients was 68.5 years. The source of the emboli in 76.4% of the patients was arteriosclerotic heart disease and atrial fibrillation. The presenting clinical symptoms and signs were the most(More)
Over a period of 11 1/2 years, 140 patients were operated on for aortoiliac disease; 81 had coexisting superficial femoral artery occlusions (combined segment disease). Patients with combined segment disease were older, had twice the incidence of diabetes, and significantly more rest pain and gangrene on presentation. Aortic bifurcation grafts were placed(More)
A prospective study was performed on 32 consecutive patients undergoing elective operations on the abdominal aorta. Dacron prosthetic grafts were used to replace resected abdominal aortic aneurysms or to bypass aorta-iliac occlusive disease. Complete coagulation studies were performed preoperatively, immediately postoperatively and 24 hours postoperatively.(More)
