BACKGROUND The architecture of the arterial wall affected with Buerger's disease has been known to be preserved in all three layers, while the one affected by arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO) is degenerated and destroyed. We analyzed affected arteries with immunohistochemical methods to clarify the differences between Buerger's disease and ASO. MATERIALS… CONTINUE READING
