Success in the direct surgical management of atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease lies primarily in the proper selection of patients for operation.1 Radiologic visualization of the diseased vessels ranks among the most important of the factors used in assessing candidates for such procedures. It is the purpose of this paper to delineate the role of arteriography in the diagnosis and surgical management of atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease, on the basis of an experience in the radiologic visualization of the aorta and great vessels in a series of 134 patients with a atherosclerotic aneurysms and obliterative disease.

Materials and Methods  Radiologic visualization of the aorta or great vessels of the lower extremities was performed in a series of 134 patients during a three-year period immediately prior to October, 1956. During this time there were approximately twice this number of hospitalized patients examined for various manifestations of obliterative peripheral vascular disease in
