Abstract

Forearm amputation after cardiac catheterization was averted when a nonthrombotic arterial occlusion was recognized within eight hours of the onset of brachial catheterization. The diagnosis was facilitated and documented by operative arteriography. The patient was successfully treated by forearm fasciotomy.
