Abstract

Authors proposed a management method of a non-diabetic patient with atherosclerosis. In authors’ opinion, this group of patients, although usually discussed together with diabetic patients in literature, require a different approach. This is related to a different pressure distribution on foot level in non-diabetic patients which more often correlates with dry necrosis caused by chronic influx impairment. Prognosis following surgical or intravascular procedure seems much better in this group which, in authors’ opinion, warrants sharing their opinion on the matter.
