In spite of the most vigorous efforts to intervene medically and surgically when peripheral vascular disease threatens a patient, amputation of the extremity may be the only option left to arrest the progression of the disease. In a previous study, the authors assessed amputations, examined gross pathology, and identified scanning electron microscopic features associated with atherosclerotic disease. In the present study, the authors discuss this disease in terms of conventional light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy.
