1. A uniformly successful method of peripheral arteriography is presented, featuring operative exposure of the artery, with puncture and proximal compression under direct vision. Special technics such as percutaneous translumbar aortic puncture, retrograde arteriography, and arterial catheterization are briefly discussed and evaluated. 2. Arteriography as a diagnostic adjunct in aneurysm, arteriovenous fistula, arterial embolism, arteriospasm, differentiation between vascular lesions and tumor, lesions of bone, iliac and femoral artery occlusion, and arterial anastomosis is discussed and illustrated. 3. Despite all refinements in technic and contrast media, arteriography at present is not without danger. The risk can be greatly minimized, however, by proper selection of cases, careful choice of contrast medium associated with the performance of sensitivity tests, painstaking technic, and preparedness for immediate treatment if the necessity arises.

    We present a 65-year-old woman who was found to have a spontaneous rupture of an aneurysmal intrarenal arteriovenous fistula. To our knowledge, the present case is only the 3rd reported in the literature. The preferred method of treatment of ruptures of arteriovenous fistulae is embolization....
