Abstract

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune condition characterized by vascular thromboses and/or pregnancy morbidity in the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies. The variant "catastrophic" (CAPS) is defined as a potential life-threatening disease, characterized by multiple small vessel thromboses that can lead to multiple organ failure. Surgery is between precipitating factors in CAPS International Registry, but it's still unclear the relationship between surgery and syndrome. The present study reports two surgical procedures, performed on two patients with APS admitted with diagnosis of loss of substance of the lower limb needing of reconstructive treatment. We compared and analyzed aggressive and minimally invasive surgery.
