Hemodynamic Aspects in Vascular Surgery

  • L. Sunder-Plassmann


Occlusive arterial disease is primarily a disease of the large transporting and distributive arteries. Essential for the development of clinical symptoms, however, are the effects of this disease on the microcirculation, which must function with only a small fraction of normal perfusion pressure. All surgical measures of revascularization, whether by thromboendarterectomy or bypass grafting, aim at reestablishing normal perfusion pressure at the level of the arterioles [6, 12].
