ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the treatment of isolated profunda femoris artery occlusion. Studies of muscle clearance in the thigh and calf are of value in elucidating the hemodynamics of calf claudication in limbs with single or multiple arterial lesions. The purpose of this article was to ascertain whether measurements of muscle blood flow in the thigh and calf using Tc might be of value in elucidating the hemodynamics of thigh claudication in limbs with the relatively uncommon lesion of isolated profunda femoris artery occlusion. Exercise in a patient with an isolated profunda femoris artery occlusion should produce a different flow pattern in which there is an increased circulation in the calf muscles which deprives the thigh of blood. Five patients with thigh claudication were selected in whom the aortographic findings had demonstrated an isolated profunda femoris artery occlusion.
