Emergency vascular conditions commonly seen by all of us are those of vascular trauma of various types, intra-arterial embolic occlusion, the intra-arterial thrombosis (with or without concomitant venous thrombosis), the venous thrombosis not responding to anticoagulation with early pulmonary embolization, and finally, the condition of phlegmasia cerula dolens. In all these cases it is essential to achieve an early diagnosis and to institute corrective and reconstructive treatment as rapidly as possible. Subsequent postoperative complications such as edema and fascial compression must be treated swiftly. Postoperative observation in the critical care unit by trained personnel is essential.
