• A total of 16 isolated arterial lesions were dilated intraoperatively in conjunction with primary vascular reconstructive procedures. Of these, eight involved the iliac vessels and eight the femoropopliteal segment. All angioplasties were successful and no catheter-related complications were noted. Hemodynamic improvement was confirmed by intraoperative pressure measurements and/or noninvasive Doppler segmental pressures.
