ABSTRACT
A group of 45 lower extremities with occlusive and spastic arterial insufficiency were treated with lumbar sympathectomy. A follow-up examination after 4 to 21 years showed improvement in 40 out of 45 legs; 1 was unchanged and 4 had gradually become worse. No serious side-effects were observed, The indications for lumbar sympathectomy are discussed and the different methods for preoperative investigations are evaluated.
