Abstract

Purpose: This study was performed to evaluate the utility of Tc-99m HMPAO-labeled leukocyte total-body scans (TBLS) for detecting remote septic foci before operation in patients undergoing aortofemoral vascular surgery. Materials and Methods: Fifty-eight patients were screened before operationfor inflammatory or infective disease, and a clinical score was assigned to each patient. Each patient had TBLSs. The relation between the clinical score and the TBLS result was determined. Patients with positive results of the TBLSs were examined, and the causes of these findings were treated before surgery. Results: Ten of the 58 (17%) patients had a positive result of TBLSs. Of 31 patients with a clinical score of zero, 3 had positive findings of TBLS. No TBLS was positive in the 13 patients with a clinical score of 1. TBLS findings were positive in 7 of 14 of the combined patients with clinical scores of 2, 3, or 4. None of the patients showed signs of prosthetic vascular graft infection during the postoperative follow-up period. Conclusions: In conclusion, TBLSs can be used before aortofemoral vascularsurgery, but only in patients with high clinical scores for inflammatory or infective disease to identify relevant infective foci that could cause vascular graft infection.
