    ABSTRACT: Samples for bacteriological examination were obtained from the aneurysm wall of 85 patients subjected to abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy. Twelve patients (14%) had positive cultures. A total of 13 bacterial strains were isolated, the majority of which were present in only small numbers and were regarded as contaminants. One patient developed a graft infection due to ischemic necrosis of the sigmoid colon. During the follow-up period no further graft infection was noted in patients with positive or negative aortic cultures. It is concluded that the aneurysm wall itself does not represent an important source of early or late graft infection.

    ABSTRACT: A posterior midline incision was used for subfascial ligation of incompetent medial and lateral perforating veins in 57 limbs. The indications for surgery were recurrent ulceration in 41 limbs and severe skin changes in 16 limbs. At follow-up two years or more after surgery 48 limbs remained free from ulceration. Wound infection (7%) and necrosis (12%) healed with conservative treatment. In our experience the posterior approach is a good alternative to other methods for ligation of incompetent perforating veins in patients with advanced skin changes, including active ulceration.
