Abstract The result of a fifteen year study related to the management of the venous injuries in the iliac-femoro-popliteal segment have been assessed. The patients were divided in Group I-comprised 20 patients with venous revascularization and Group II-12 cases without revascularization. The early results at 30 days evaluated by the clinical examination revealed edema in all limbs without revascularization. The phlebographic patency of the revascularization was 70%. The difference between the two groups was significant (X2 = 14.93; X2 critical = 3.84). The late results were evaluated clinically in 14 patients (ranged from 6 months to 12 years) and phlebographically in 8 (ranged from 2 years to 9 years). The comparison between the two groups revealed residual edema in 5 patients of Group II as well as in 2 patients of Group I (p = 0.0105 or 1.05%). Supported in this experience we recommend the revascularization of major injured veins.
