The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of performing surgical reconstructions in patients with aortoiliac occlusive disease with findings obtained solely from duplex scanning. Between January 1995 through December 1999, among 112 patients who underwent surgical intervention due to aortoiliac occlusive disease, 44 were operated on with findings obtained solely from preoperative duplex scanning. Deviations from preoperatively planned surgical interventions according to duplex scan findings and the outcome were analyzed. Our results showed that surgical reconstructions for treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease can be safely performed by using duplex scanning as the sole preoperative diagnostic modality in patients with conclusive duplex scan findings.
