The experimental use of heterologous umbilical vein grafts as aortic substitutes.
Although arterial homografts have been successfully used in the replacement or bypassing of diseased arteries, long-term observations have produced disquieting reports of progressive graftExpand
Die chirurgische Behandlung chronischer Arterienverschlüsse der unteren Extremität, unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Wiederherstellungschirurgie und ihrer strömungstechnischen Probleme
Die peripheren Arterienerkrankungen haben ihrer Haufigkeit und standigen Zunahme wegen wesentlich an Bedeutung gewonnen. Durch die sturmischen Fortschritte in der Gefaschirurgie sind dieExpand

Segmental aorto-iliac and femoral arterial occlusion; treatment by resection and arterial graft replacement.
A brief clinical characterization of this type of arterial disease is presented on the basis of 27 cases recently observed and their treatment by resection and arterial homograft replacement is discussed. Expand
Preliminary observations on the use of human arterial grafts in the treatment of certain cardiovascular defects.
Investigations have been conducted to further the work of other experimenters and to determine the feasibility of transferring a segment of large artery from one animal to another of the same species. Expand

Certain relationships between symptoms and pathology are set forth to set forth the applicability of direct surgical treatment for arteriosclerosis. Expand
Digital blood flow following reconstructive arterial surgery.
Digital blood flow measurements are made in the upper and lower extremities of patients with arteriosclerotic occlusive disease and aneurysms of the aorta and peripheral arteries to provide interesting data relating to peripheral blood flow which might be clinically useful as well. Expand
Treatment of aneurysms and occlusive disease of the aorta by resection; analysis of eighty-seven cases.
A careful follow-up study of 102 patients found that one-third of these patients died within a year after the diagnosis was established, mostly from rupture of the aneurysm, and that only 10% of patients at age 65 years have a normal life expectancy. Expand
Pliable plastic aortic grafts; experimental comparison of a number of materials.
The search for the ideal plastic material for use as an arterial substitute is important in view of the fact that autogenous and homologous vascular grafts are not available in quantities sufficientExpand
