ABSTRACT
1. The results obtained by thromboendarterectomy in 18 patients suffering from segmental complete occlusion (in the Peripheral Vascular Diseases Service of the Lila Hidalgo Hospital) are reported. 2. The factors influencing the success of the operation are proper selection of patients and adequate administration of anticoagulants. 3. The patients on whom it is possible to demonstrate arteriographically a distal thrombosis or a diffuse arteriosclerosis are discarded as unsuitable for the operation. 4. The anticoagulant method followed by satisfactory results is described. 5. Thromboendarterectomy is presented as the operation to be preferred in cases of segmental arterial occlusion of an arteriosclerotic nature.
