The x-ray findings of the bony structures of 60 lower extremities with severe arterial insufficiency were reviewed. Roentgenologic changes of a nonspecific nature were found in 19 lower extremities. Osteoporosis was the most frequent finding. Disuse, injury to major arteries or nerves, and senile osteoporosis were contributing factors. Less frequent findings were septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, and self-amputation of a gangrenous toe. The bony changes were limited, as a rule, to the most peripheral parts of the extremity. Regression of the changes was not observed in any of the cases.
