Abstract

The results of arteriography in the management of 100 consecutive patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms are presented. Arteriographic information had substantial influence upon management decisions and performance of surgery in 75 per cent of cases. We found the preoperative knowledge of the precise vascular pathology or anatomic variants not only permitted a more rational recommendation for or against surgery but aided in the selection of the most suitable surgical procedure.
