ABSTRACT
One hundred and two cases of postphlebitic syndrome of the lower extremities, subjected to interruption of the venous femoro-popliteal circulation, are reported. Late results of from one to four years, evaluated clinically and with the aid of phlebography in 60 patients, are described. Even though the authors concede that the postphlebitic syndrome is not entirely due to changes in hemodynamics of the limb affected, they maintain, on the basis of their experience, that surgical interruption of the femoro-popliteal circulation leads to improvement in 65 per cent of the cases. It is concluded that this treatment, even though it still carries with it many unknown factors, doubtloss constitutes real progress in the management of postphlebitic syndrome.
