HARVEY L. MYERS, M.D., F.A.C.P.
One rarely has the opportunity to observe the panorama of a single ailment unfold itself over a broad span of years. It has been my privilege to follow, at first hand, the clinical picture of arteriosclerosis obliterans associated with gangrene and/or ulceration of the extremities for the years following World War II, 1946 through 1956. During that decade 1,158 patients, 643 males and 515 females, were hospitalized at the Queens General Hospital with varying degrees of gangrene of the extremities associated with arteriosclerosis obliterans. Seventy-nine per cent of these people were over 60 years of age.
