[Isolated plastic repair of the deep femoral artery in acute arterial obstruction].

[Article in Russian]


In 67 patients with acute arterial obstruction non-direct thrombus-, embolectomy was added by plasty of the profound artery of the femur. 36 patients were discharged with reestablished blood flow in the extremity, 12 patients-after amputation and 19 patients died though in 8 of them blood circulation in the extremity was reestablished. Such an operation is a method of choice in the surgical treatment of patients with acute arterial obstruction developed against the background of chronic occlusion of the vessel of the femoro-popliteal segment when other methods of direct revascularization of the extremity are thought to be impossible.
