    Three different femoral artery flow velocity parameters in combination with segmental pressure measurements were evaluated for their respective diagnostic value in identifying the presence or absence of hemodynamically significant aorto-iliac disease. A total of 60 patients (119 legs) were...

  • Using inverted autogenous veins to substitute arteries in a canine model. Nikeghbalian, Saman; Hosseini, Seyed Mohammad Vahid; Bananzadeh, Ali Mohammad; Monabati, Ahmad; Bagheri, Mohammad Hadi; Razmi, Tannaz; Malek-Hosseini, Seyed Ali // Journal of Emergencies, Trauma & Shock;Jul2010, Vol. 3 Issue 3, p238 

    Aims: Rapid harvesting of autogenous graft over a wire is an optional way in trauma surgery and it places the inverted conduit so that its adventitial layer is within the lumen of the graft. Our aim of this study was to compare the patency of inverted autogenous graft vs noninverted graft in...
