|Abstract||Occlusive disease localized to the common femoral artery without contiguous involvement of the external iliac and superficial femoral arteries is distinctly uncommon in vascular surgical practice. Twenty patients with focal occlusive disease in 21 common femoral arteries are featured in this report. All except one had severe disabling symptoms: Fontaine classification was stage I in one patient, stage IIb in 13, and stage III in six patients. The probable aetiology, based on clinical features and angiographic observations, was identified as atherosclerosis (nine cases), thromboangiitis obliterans (three) and Takayasu's arteritis (two). Histological features of mucoid vasculopathy, a novel disorder, was seen in one patient while no specific aetiology was evident in five patients. Associated lesions were seen in fourteen patients: aortoiliac in one, femoropopliteal in seven (without any continuity to the common femoral lesion), internal iliac in three and tibial in three. Balloon angioplasty of the common femoral artery lesions was attempted in 14 patients with successful outcome in nine. Three patients (including two with failed balloon angioplasty), underwent thromboendarterectomy and two bypass procedures (iliofemoral, one; femoropopliteal, one). Late reocclusion occurred in one patient each in the angioplasty and surgical groups. There were no procedure-related complications in either group.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
