Prompt recognition of damage to a major artery in cases of fracture of the femur requires constant awareness of the possibility of this injury. When a laceration of one of the femoral arteries is overlooked one of the late complications is a false aneurysm. A case is described in which a false aneurysm developed after an open fracture of the femur. Repeated hemorrhage occurred before the complication was recognized and successfully repaired.

    "Hot-tip" laser angioplasty has been proven safe and effective in treating periperal vascular disease. There is, however, a group of patients with lesions or occlusions at the origin of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) that are difficult to approach from a standard antegrade femoral...

    A retrograde approach to recanalization of totally occluded superficial femoral arteries proved efficacious in this study. The primary success rate was 83% and overall success rate was improved from 50% to 70%. Hemorrhagic complications were lower than with the antegrade approach.

    Purpose: Cerebral vasospasm is the common cause of poor outcome after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). Although many agents are experimentally and clinicaly used to protect or recover from vasospasm, an effective neurotherapeutic drug is still missing. Erythropoietin (EPO) is recently...

    Measurements of intraosseous pressure in the collum and caput femoris were performed on 17 patients with lateral/trochanteric fractures and 29 patients with medial fractures of the femoral neck. In lateral fractures, the pressure tracings were always pulsatile at both points of measurements,...

    Background: Femoral access is a fundamental element of catheter-based cerebral angiography. Knowledge of location of the common femoral artery (CFA) bifurcation is important as the risk of retroperitoneal bleeding is increased if the puncture is superior to the inguinal ligament and there is an...
