Amputated ischaemic limb due to thrombo-emboli of major artery manage by Fogarty embolectomy has better prognosis than manage by LMW Heparin

Author(s): Dr. Ashutosh Kumar, Dr. Amarjeet Kumar and Dr. Sanjeev Kumar
Abstract: Extraction of arterial emboli using the Fogarty catheter has been widely accepted technique for embolectomy but it also give better circulatory function in amputated limb and its wound healing.
Case presentation: This report describes arterial occlusion due to emboli in upper or lower limb has better circulatory function in amputated limb after thromoboembolectomy with a Fogarty catheter. It was managed successfully using an endovascular technique consisting of selective catheterization and coil embolization.
Conclusion: Endovascular technique can be successfully used to prevent further ischaemia of limb and has better circulatory function in amputated limb than manage by LMW Heparin An interesting case is presented and its management discussed below.
