PMID:  143214     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Disseminated intravascular coagulation is infrequently encountered in the practice of peripheral vascular surgery. Nonetheless, it has devastating and often fatal effects. In our series of eight cases, the mortality rate was 62.5 per cent. A better understanding of the basic disease process as prompted by this review, earlier diagnosis, and rational treatment should lead to higher survival rates and lowered morbidity.
