Abstract

Objective. The focus of this study is to explore how we can incorporate scientific discovery regarding patterns of disease of the arteries of the lower extremities to more tailored, and effective treatments of such diseases. Background. In 1967, Henry Haimovici published his observations about patterns of disease of the arterial tree of the lower extremities. His observations showed distinct and specific patterns linked to age, possibly gender and underlying risk factors. Today, most arterial problems are treated in a similar fashion, and Haimovici’s findings seem to have fallen into oblivion. Methods. The research for this study will be done through a review of the literature of: a) the patterns of lesions from atherosclerosis and other pathologies in the arteries of the lower extremities; b) the use of diagnostic techniques to assess these patterns; and c) the implications in regard to the treatments presently available. Results. Not available at this point (the term will end in December). Conclusion. Not available at this poin
