ABSTRACT
The literature on peripheral arterial embolism has been reviewed. Twenty cases of embolisms in 11 patients treated at the University Hospital ‘General Calixto García’ are reported. A case of embolism dislodged from an arteriosclerotic plague localized in the thoracic aorta is described. A case of embolism successfully operated 52 hours after the onset of the symptoms is reported and the optimal time interval for the operation is discussed. A report is made of 4 cases of embolism, including an aortic embolism, with spontaneous recovery. It is recommended that the use of aortography as a diagnostic procedure during the acute phase be avoided. The importance of anatomical factors in the prognosis of the extremity, especially in upper limb and popliteal embolisms, is pointed out. The advantages of spinal anesthesia are emphasized compared with the paravertebral sympathetic block for the suppression of spasm in the lower limbs. The importance of the prophylactic treatment in recurrent embolism is emphasized. Prolonged anticoagulant therapy is the procedure of choice in the prophylaxis of embolism.
