Objective: We aimed to investigate the etiology, treatment modalities and early results of patients operated for peripheric vascular injury. Material and Methods: 321 patients operated for peripheric vascular injury between February 2000 and November 2010 at cardiovascular surgery department were included in the retrospective study. Results: Vascular injury most frequently developed due to penetrating trauma (65.8%), blunt trauma (13.7%) and gunshot injury (11.5%). The level of injury in those patients was found to be more commonly at upper extremity. The most frequently performed treatment method was end to end anastomosis (45.4%) and autogenous vein graft interposition (27.9%). While amputation ratio was 1.2%, early mortality was 1.8%. Conclusion: Early diagnosis and treatment of peripheric vascular injuries, providing hemodynamic stability, multidisciplinary approach will reduce morbidity and morta- lity.
