The article describes extreme tortuosity of the iliac artery in a 76-year-old woman. The patient underwent coronary catheterization via the right femoral artery. Contrast computed tomography of the pelvic vessels and aorta showed an unusually tortuous right iliac artery with complete loop formation. The left iliac artery was also tortuous.

    Although results of iliac artery balloon angioplasty have been shown to be good, there are much less data regarding initial success and durability of superficial femoral artery (SFA) dilation. The authors retrospectively reviewed the results of 22 patients treated for 27 SFA lesions between 1981...

    Eleven cases of late embolectomy are described. These patients were operated on 13 hours to 20 days after the onset of acute arterial embolism in the lower limbs. The mean time of intervention was 6.48 days. The average age of the patients was 61.8, the youngest being 44 and the oldest 71. The...

    Between 1982 and 1986, 65 high-risk patients underwent iliofemoral crossover bypass (COBP) for unilateral iliac occlusion or stenosis; 53.8% complained of rest pain, 27.6% showed beginning gangrene, and 13.8% were operated on because of acute iliac occlusion. The proximal anastomosis was placed...

    External iliac and/or common femoral arteries injury from blunt trauma is uncommon. The role of trauma as a causative factor in this condition has been previously documented rarely.In this study we present a case that had traumatic occlusion of the right external iliac and common femoral arteries.
