ABSTRACT
Most patients with arterial disease of the lower extremities have ather- osclerosis, frequently termed arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO). Thera- peutically, both medical and/or surgical approaches are in order. Surgically, local manifestations of the disease can. be treated very effectively by endarterectomy or bypass procedures. The disease, however, is generalized and can affect more vital organs, so consideration must be given to a number of important factors. in the overall treatment.
