Fluoroscopy with the C arm allows for the immediate assessment of distal arterial circulation following embolectomy. With the use of two embolectomy catheters, each one of the trifurcation vessels can be separately cannulated to remove additional thrombus. The technique described is not difficult and adds little time to the operative procedure.
