Studies in Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease
III. Acute Arterial Occlusion
Material for an analysis of the pathogenesis and course of acute peripheral arterial occlusion was provided by patients with acute arterial occlusion in a lower extremity, special arterial injection studies of amputated limbs, arteriograms performed on cadavers, and data from an experimental investigation of acute femoral artery embolism in dogs. This correlative study offers a basis for the evaluation of procedures recommended for the prophylaxis and treatment of acute ischemia.
