BACKGROUND Elevated total homocysteine plasma levels are considered a significant factor of vascular damage. As they are encountered in more than half the patients with atherosclerotic vascular damage the importance as a lipid-dependent or lipid-independent risk factor in the promotion of pathophysiological processes is discussed.

Patients with affections of the vascular system of the lower extremities at several levels present a complicated problem for vascular surgery. The authors submit their experience with a combination of vascular reconstruction and peroperative transluminal angioplasty. In 25 patients, mean age 64 years, they performed 29 of these combined operations, 10 times(More)
Embolization of the renal arterial bed with embolization agent Vilan 500 was performed in 13 dogs. Embolized kidneys shrink after the procedure and the functional parenchyma is extinguished. Peripheral PRA values were followed to find out whether renin production by the embolized kidney is extinguished (the non-embolized kidney was surgically removed). In(More)
The authors performed, in the period of 10/1980 to 12/1985, 102 PTA interventions in 95 patients in the peripheral region. The lasting clinical improvement of early and long-term duration was expressed by the Life-table method. In the whole cohort, 95% of patients proved to be improved clinically in the early period (3 months after the intervention), while(More)
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) takes its stable position in the therapy of obliterating arterial diseases. Its indication areas considerably extend. The authors present a survey of their experience and the results of PTA of arteries supplying the brain and upper extremities. This surgery was made in 29 patients on 31 arteries. The authors(More)
