A group of patients, including 88 diabetics and 93 non-diabetics (patients were diagnosed according to A. Bollinger system) was studied in terms of occlusive-stentic lesions. The occlusive-stentic affection of low-extremities combined with diabetes is characterized by a number of distinctive features. The majority of diabetics are suffering the distal type of arterial lesion, while atherosclerotics suffer the proximal type. Diabetes functions as a complicating factor, forcing the development of occlusive-stentic process largely in distal segments of low extremities, meaning popliteal and crural arteries. This process eventually leads to the ischemia of low extremities.
