Eighteen cases of lower extremity revascularization with the distal profunda femoris artery are reported. The results of this experience support the following conclusions: (1) the profunda femoris artery usually remains patent in cases of ileofemoral arteriosclerotic occlusive disease; (2) this vessel can be dissected without damage to adjacent vital structures in sufficient length to permit vascular reconstruction; (3) in this selective group of patients, runoff into the distal collateral circulation from the profunda system is usually sufficient for maintenance of graft patency, relief of ischemia and limb salvage; (4) distal profunda femoris arterial revascularization seems to be a practical procedure that may be effectively applied to ileofemoral occlusive disease that is not correctable through the usual techniques.

    Proximal right coronary artery occlusion caused transient loss of sensing and capture of the atrial lead of a permanent dual-chamber pacemaker. Forty-five days after percutaneous revascularization, the atrial lead was discovered to be functioning normally. We hypothesize that ischemia of the...
