  • Arterial Embolism

    In the absence of gangrene, prompt embolectomy should be performed on limbs which show persistent signs of severe ischemia resistant to conservative therapy.[] Acute peripheral arterial occlusion requires an urgent decision for effective management in order to avoid progressive limb ischemia and extensive gangrene.[] Mitral commissurotomy and auricular appendectomy were performed on 24 patients with peripheral embolism; except for four emboli during commissurotomy, no further embolization[]
