Critical ischaemia following endovascular instrumentation: resolution with general anaesthetic

Critical ischaemia of the lower limb secondary to occlusion of the puncture site vessel is an unusual but well-recognized complication of endovascular intervention. We present two patients who developed such a complication. In each case, the initial treatment plan was to perform an emergency thrombectomy. However, both cases were found to resolve dramatically with the administration of isofluorane and fentanyl anaesthetic agents.
