ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the arteriosclerosis of the lower extremities. The management of arteriosclerosis of the lower extremities has undergone a radical change during the last 10 years. The article collects a series of patients suffering from intermittent claudication due to arterisclerosis but without gangrene or pregangrenous changes and follows them indefinitely. It classifies arteriosclerosis of the lower extremities into following categories: diffuse arteriosclerosis; secondary aortic; secondary femoral thrombosis; secondary popliteal thrombosis. The task of assessing the mortality and success rates of arterial reconstruction in order to get an over-all picture of the results is no easy one.
