Contrast arteriography (CA) is the gold standard preoperative imaging modality for patients with chronic and acute lower limb ischemia. We have previously shown that high-quality DUAM can safely replace CA in patients with chronic ischemia. The goal of this study was to investigate whether DUAM can also be used effectively in the setting of acute ischemia. From January 1998 to February 2001, 68 patients were admitted to our institution with 87 instances of acute lower limb(s) ischemia and… CONTINUE READING
