It is 30 years since the first arterial prosthesis surgery was performed in Iceland. During the last five years 1,229 arterial operations were performed in the five largest hospitals in Iceland. This means an average of 245.8 per year, or 98.3 operations per 100,000 inhabitants yearly. The number has increased from 183 in 1984 to 289 in 1988.
