Arteriography is a useful adjunct in the diagnosis and selection of treatment of many cases of aneurysm or of occlusive disease of the arteries. It is of value for accurate localization of an arteriovenous fistula. Phlebography is of value in tin- diagnosis of acute venous thrombosis and post-phlebitic states, and also assists in planning adequate surgery for varicose veins. Techniques of arteriography and materials used are described. The types of untoward reaction are outlined and methods of prevention are discussed. It is noted that in most cases an angiogram is performed as an office procedure on an ambulatory patient.

    Acute limb-threatening ischemia from thrombosis may be the initial presentation of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAA) and is associated with amputation rates of 20-30%. Since contrast angiography may miss the diagnosis, the authors suspect that thrombosis of PAA may be an underappreciated cause of...

    OBJECTIVE: :Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVF), the most common vascular malformations of the spine, are usually supplied by branches of the intercostal or lumbar arteries. Rarely, the DAVF are fed by branches of the hypogastric artery. Only 12 such cases have been reported. CASE...
