abstract

  • We have performed digital subtraction angiography (DSA) on 127 patients treated by vascular surgery. This technique was easily and safely performed in outpatients, without any complication. Our experience indicates that DSA is accurate for post operative evaluation in 96% of cases. In digestive arterial surgery, some examinations (3.3%) are insufficient. Distal run off is usually well seen, everywhere, except in kidneys. There is a good correlation between angiographic results and clinical status. However, significant abnormalities were discovered in 5% of cases without any clinical signs. Digital intravenous angiography is a safe and mildly invasive procedure for postoperative evaluation of vascular surgery.
