SYMPTOMS

Classically, it is described in male patients as a triad of symptoms consisting of:

  1. Claudication of the buttocks and thighs
  2. Atrophy of the musculature of the legs
  3. Impotence (due to paralysis of the L1 nerve)

This combination is known as Leriche syndrome. However, any number of symptoms may present, depending on the distribution and severity of the disease. Variable, chronic ischemia involving the lower limbs is a common presentation.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

  • Aortoiliac bypass graft
  • Axillofemoral and femoral-femoral bypass (sometimes abbreviated "ax-fem fem-fem")
