Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fourteen patients with atherosclerotic aneurysms of the popliteal artery, which were bilateral in 13, have been managed in a vascular unit where ultrasound, xerography, and isotope angiography are available for investigation. Although these methods are useful in confirming a suspected diagnosis, they cannot replace an awareness of the condition and clinical methods of examining the ischaemic lower limb. Reconstructive vascular surgery was effective in preserving the presenting leg in 5 cases and amputation was needed in 6, while no operation was needed in 3. Elective arterial surgery was carried out on the asymptomatic contralateral leg in 7 cases with good results and this active approach to treatment is recommended.
