Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A rare case of acutely thrombosed atherosclerotic aneurysm of the deep femoral artery is herein described. A review of the literature revealed 12 other reported cases of deep femoral aneurysm. However none were treated by resection and replacement using a human umbilical vein graft which was chosen in the present case because the autogenous saphenous vein was not available.
