The article presents information on leg arterial insufficiency in patients with significant coronary artery diseases. The complications of atherosclerosis constitute the major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States today, accounting for nearly one million deaths annually. The signs and symptoms of atherosclerosis depend on the organ systems involved in the brain, heart, and lower extremities being the most commonly affected clinically. It is not unusual for patients to manifest involvement of more than one organ system.
