Abstract

A tailored approach for evaluating patients with peripheral vascular disease has been developed using intravenous digital subtraction angiography (IV DSA). This approach includes a history, physical examination, and correlation with Doppler pressure measurements to predict the location of the dominant lesion. In 60 patients, two views of the aortoiliac segment plus three of four views of the femoral and runoff circulation in the most symptomatic leg were obtained. Of the 60 patients, 36% had percutaneous transluminal angioplasty as a primary form of therapy, 32% were treated surgically, and 32% were followed clinically. Only 10% of these patients required further evaluation by conventional angiography. By omitting inpatient arteriography, considerable financial savings and increased patient comfort result.
