Abstract

In recent years, these has been an increasing number of patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease which involves only the tibial vessels while the proximal arterial system is free of obliterative atherosclerosis. Most of these patients are diabetic. Conventional angiography shows no patent native artery below the popliteal level although Doppler sonography reveals a flow signal over a tibial artery at the level of the ankle or foot. Selective digital angiography sometimes shows the plantar arch or parts of it to be patent.
