The perioperative prognosis of 8 1 diabetic patients after endarterectomy of the femoral artery was analyzed by a computer program and compared to the prognosis of a control group of 83 nondiabetic patients. The percentage of fe- male patients in the group with diabetes mellitus was 22% in comparison with 8% of the control group. Most of the diabetic patients in clinical degree 11/111 were approximately 10 years younger at the time of operation than the patients of the control group. Cardiac complications occurred in 16% of the diabetic patients and in 1% of the nondiabetic patients. The hospital mortality in the group with diabetes mellitus was 14%, significantly higher than the 6% mortality among patients of the control group (x² = 4.26). Clinical evaluation of the patients in both groups showed that the patency rate of the reconstructed vessels was 80%.

    Background: The first idea of surgeons (1902) to avoid amputations due to ischemia was to deviate the arterial flow to the venous system using an arteriovenous fistula between adjacent vessels; however, the results were unreliable. Since then, sympathectomies, endarterectomies and bypasses have...
