Abstract

The association of severe peripheral arteriosclerotic occlusive disease and cancer is unusual. Review of 14 patients with both conditions treated by arterial reconstruction demonstrated excellent limb salvage without prejudice of survival or patency. Accordingly, we believe that limb salvage operations should be considered in patients with limb-threatening peripheral vascular disease and an associated cancer.
