OBJECTIVE: The Authors report on a series of 61 vascular traumas treated over a 7 years, separated in two groups. The
first one includes 35 cases, that are street accidents, on the work and gunshot wounds. The second group includes 26
iatrogenic causes due to arterial catheterism.
METHODS: All patients underwent ecocolor Doppler directly in the operating theatre and, when this diagnostic procedure
was not enough, pre-operating angiography was used (10 cases of complex traumas of the lower limb).
RESULTS: One death was reported far each groups (3.27%). In 55 cases (90.1%), limb savage was achieved. In the
others 4 (6.93%) of the first group, limb demolition was necessary for different causes. In the first group, severe neurological
sequelaes were observed in 2 cases and motor deficits caused by tendon lesions in 1 case.
CONCLUSION: The good results obtained are the result of the short ischemic interval between the acute event and treatment,
thanks to a multidisciplinary approach of a specific équipe, that is rapid as possible.
