ABSTRACT
1. A gross anatomic study was made of arterial segments of the lower extremity, from the common iliac to the popliteal bifurcation. 2. Atheroarteriosclerosis was seen to be a disseminated disease usually involving the whole arterial tree. 3. The incidence and degree of disease involvement increased with increasing age, occurring most predominantly in the 6th to the 10th decades. 4. Occlusive disease usually occurred at more than one anatomic site in the same host. 5. The incidence of most severe involvement occurred most frequently at sites where the dynamics of blood flow are changed because of bifurcation of the artery or a change in its direction.
