1Marienhospital Hamın-Almanya Damar Cerrahisi Kliniği The inguinal region is of great importance in vascular surgery: both as the anastomotic region and as a re­ gion of false aneurysms after arterial punctions. The therapy of inguinal anerysms is operative.

in our clinic were operated 46 cases of inguinal aneurysms: 10 cases (21.74 %) of arteriosclerotic aneurisms (5 of these 10.87 %) were cases of general dilatated arteriosclerosis), 12 cases (26.08 %) of postoperative anas­ tomotic aneurysms, 24 cases (52.17 %) of false aneurysms from diagnostic or therapeutical punctions.

The tirsi diagnose was realized by palpation ofa pulsating tumor. This diagnose was guaranteed with ultra­ sonography. in some cases angiography was necessary. The aneurysms of 2• cm and more were operated. Be­ cause of an exalted possibility of complications and because ofa mortality rate of 0.00 % in our cases in our opi­ nion the indication should be wide. Keywords :
