Multispiral computed tomography opened new horizons in diagnosis of vascular pathology. The study was aimed at evaluating the significance of MSCT in diagnosis of complications following major and minor surgical interventions for obliterating diseases of the lower-limb arteries, using the findings of the intraoperative revision as a reference method. Each of the 68 examined patients underwent MSCT (4-spiral unit) and duplex scanning. The obtained findings suggest a high informative value of MSCT, hence making it possible to recommend it for use as an alternative means of the routinely used roentgen-contrast angiography.

KEY WORDS: multi-spiral CT, Doppler ultrasonography, lower limb arteries, vascular surgery, by-pass, stent, thrombosis.
