Author(s): Dr. Ashutosh Kumar, Dr. Sanjeev Kumar and Dr. Amarjeet Kumar
Abstract: Extraction of arterio-venous emboli using the Fogarty catheter has been widely accepted technique for embolectomy but it also give better circulatory function in amputated limb Case Presentation: This report describes arterio-venous occlusion due to emboli in upper or lower limb has better circulatory function in amputated limb after thromboembolectomy with a Fogarty catheter. It was managed successfully using an endovascular technique consisting of selective catheterization and coil embolization. Conclusion: Endovascular technique can be successfully used to prevent further isheamia of limb and has better circulatory function in amputated limb than manage by LMW Heparin An interesting case is presented and its management discussed below.
