Abstract The results of 100 consecutive patients undergoing arterial embolectomy at the Royal Brisbane Hospital between 1971 and 1981 are presented. Twenty‐two patients died and 18 of these had unsuccessful procedures. Of the 82 patients surviving more than 30 days, 14 had a limb amputated and 12 underwent further vascular surgery. Duration of ischaemia was the most important predictive factor; 75% of cases with an ischaemia time of less than 12 h had a successful outcome whereas only 37% were successful when the ischaemia time exceeded 12 h. Anticoagulation improved the success rate, but resulted in a high incidence of wound haematoma. Copyright
