Eight hundred and eighty-three patients of peripheral vessel diseases have been experienced during the last 18 years at the Second Department of Surgery, Hokkaido University Hospital. Those cases consisted of 52 arteriovenous fistulae, 26 arterial injuries, 41 peripheral aneurysms, 403 acute and chronic arterial occlusions, and 336 peripheral venous diseases. The results of surgical treatment of those cases were reviewed. Although the operative results of most diseases are quite satisfactory, careful evaluations or prompt surgical interventions are emphasized in treatment of arteriovenous fistula, arterial injuries, and arterial occlusions.
