Twelve cases of chronic obliterative arterial disease of the lower extremities in which previously absent pedal pulsations again became palpable without surgical treatment are presented. It is significant that only one of these patients was a diabetic. A brief outline of the medical regimen, in which a strict schedule of walking to tolerance several times daily is believed to be of paramount importance, is described.
