Arterial reconstruction in 50 consecutive male patients with aortoiliac aneurysmal or occlusive disease was performed with PTFE bifurcation grafts. Follow-up intervals ranged from 1 to 39 months. All patients were evaluated by physical examination at 19.5 +/- 1.3 months. In addition, 46 patients were evaluated by ultrasonography at 18.2 +/- 1.2 months, 19 by angiography at 19.8 +/- 2.2 months, and 4 by computerized axial tomography at 21.5 +/- 5.2 months.
