[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The authors summarize herein their experience gained in surgical management of twenty-nine patients suffering from multiple lesions of the brachiocephalic arteries. Depending on the pattern of vascular lesions, the patients were subjected either to simultaneous correction of stenosis of the internal carotid and subclavian arteries on the ipsilateral side or to stagewise intervention in the presence of contralateral stenosis of the carotid artery. Surgical policy and stages of simultaneous intervention are described in detail.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Eight hundred and twelve patients with varicose disease were examined, 18 (2.2%) of them had aneurysms in the region of sapheno-femoral anastomosis. Venous aneurysm was diagnosed before surgery in all 18 patients. All of them underwent surgery with positive result. Diagnosis of aneurysm of great saphena vein in inguinal region is not difficult in most cases. Difficulties usually occur in patients with overweight. In 5 patients with obesity aneurysm was initially diagnosed as femoral hernia. Duplex scanning is the best non-invasive method of diagnosis of venous aneurysm in obese patients.
