This is a retrospective study describing our experience with vascular surgical procedures performed in patients 90 years of age or older. Thirty- four procedures, including major and minor vascular reconstruction and amputation, were performed in 20 patients. The 30-day mortality rate was 6% for planned surgical procedures. The 24-month survival rate was 82% for elective major revascularizations and limb salvage was 80% in these patients. We believe that vascular reconstruction can be carried out with acceptable morbidity and mortality when the operations are planned and the patients have been chosen carefully.
