Recent advances in vascular surgery have created a demand for more accurate methods of diagnosis. Just as developments in surgery of the abdomen, urinary tract, head, and thorax have been aided by improvements in radiographic technic, so advances in vascular surgery may be expected to develop with visualization of the heart and blood vessels after the injection of contrast media. The present paper is presented to show the development of our use of retrograde arteriography in the visualization of lesions of the aorta and of peripheral vessels.
Sicard and Forestier1 were the first to visualize the blood vessels of the
