- Upper Extremity Emboli:
    - upper extremity emboli can be removed thru brachial arteriotomy;
    - transverse arteriotomy  is placed just above brachial bifurcation into radial and ulnar artery ;
    - embolectomy is similar to lower extremity embolectomy with passage of catheteres both proximally and distally;
    - number 2 or 3 Fr Fogarty catheters can usually be threaded into hand;
    - if distal pulses do not return following restoration of flow, completion angiography is mandatory
