Multiple arterial disease in clinical practice

Despotović Nebojša, Zdravković Mihajlo

There is a significant correlation among obliterate lesions of coronary carotid and peripheral arteries of the lower arteries at the same time. This pointed out that whenever clinical manifestations of obliterate disease of peripheral arteries are present. There is also need for routine examination of existent coronary artery disease. In the case of concomitant significant coronary and carotid vascular disease there is a question what should be operated first. The most vascular centres prefer carotid endarterectomy before aortocoronary bypass, and if there is nonstable coronary disease simultaneous carotid endarterectomy and aortocoronary bypass should be carried out.
