According to WIDMER (1993), prospective studies revealed a rapid increase in peripheral vascular diseases in diabetics (25%-58%). In 40% of these this led to critical leg ischemia, which was only found in 18% of non -diabetics. 9 times more often than non-diabetics. 3 times more often. The diagnostic and therapeutic management of diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia is an important health problem. The leg-amputation rate among diabetics is approximately 15 times higher than that among non-diabetics (KRONE and MULLER-WIELAND 1990; MOST and SINNOCK 1983).

2. Role of structural versus functional changes as a determinant of arterial obstruction. The luminal diameter can change due to vasodilation or vasoconstriction in both normal and atherosclerotic arteries. However, in atherosclerotic arteries, there is a higher tendency towards luminal narrowing (Luscher and Vanhoutte 1990). This effect is not only caused by functional changes with impaired release of relaxing factors and enhanced production of contracting factors, it is also related to structural changes with neointima formation and increased rigidity (Lafont et al.
