PURPOSE Early results of a prospective study that compared surgical revascularization and thrombolysis for lower extremity arterial and graft occlusions have been published. This report details the final results in patients who have native artery occlusions. METHODS Two hundred thirty-seven patients who had lower extremity ischemia as a result of iliac-common femoral (IF; 69 patients) or superficial femoral-popliteal (FP; 168 patients) occlusion, and had symptomatically deteriorated within… CONTINUE READING
