The medium term results of 112 profundaplasties for lower limb ischaemia are reviewed for periods of up to 9 years after operation. Death from cardiovascular causes was found to be more common than subsequent amputation. Though immediate relief from symptoms was not so dramatic as after a femoropopliteal graft, the longer term results showed a much lower late amputation rate. The only resonable operation for failure of a previous femoropopliteal graft appears to be a profundaplasty.
