Objective. Anastomotic pseu­do­an­eu­rysms con­tin­ue to be a ­late com­pli­ca­tion of vas­cu­lar sur­gery, par­tic­u­lary fol­low­ing pros­thet­ic ­graft pro­ce­dures. The pur­pose of ­this ­study ­was to inves­ti­gate if a pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed ­increase in inter­val ­between ­the orig­i­nal oper­a­tion ­and ­the devel­op­ment of pseu­do­aneu­rysm ­was relat­ed to a ­change in inci­dence.
Design. Retrospective ­study.
Methods. We ­reviewed ­the ­records of 76 ­patients ­who pre­sent­ed ­with 90 femo­ral pseu­do-aneu­rysms ­and under­went recon­struc­tive pro­ce­dures ­from January 1989 to June 1994. The ­median ­age ­was 69 ­years (­range: 39-83). In ­the ­same ­time peri­od ­all femo­ral ­artery anas­tom­o­sis oper­a­tions ­were record­ed.
Results. The inci­dence of femo­ral pseu­do-aneu­rysms in Copenhagen ­was approx­i­mate­ly 4.3%.
Conclusions. A pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed ­increase in inter­val ­between pri­mary oper­a­tion ­and aneu­ryms for­ma­tion ­was ­not relat­ed to a ­change in inci­dence dur­ing ­the ­same ­time peri­od.
