Buerger’s disease (thromboangiitis obliterans) is a recurrent inflammatory, nonatherosclerotic vasoocclusive disease, which typically affects small and medium‐sized arteries, veins and nerves of the upper and lower extremities. Although the exact underlying causes of Buerger’s disease are still unknown, the disease is strongly associated with tobacco smoking. Affected patients are mostly young male smokers who develop ulcers and gangrene of the toes and fingers as a result of vascular ischaemia… 
Severe gangrene at the glans penis requiring penectomy as the first major complication of Buerger's disease.
TLDR
An interesting case of Buerger's disease that manifested at the glans penis in a 56 year-old former smoker who underwent a partial penectomy and urethral reconstruction with excellent post-operative results.

TLDR
It is revealed that TAO may be a systemic disease and patients should be aware of the possible involvement of other organs along with the attendant warning signs and early systemic medical treatment of such patients may lead to better outcomes and reduce the overall mortality rate.

Buerger's disease with multisystem involvement. A case report and a review of the literature.
TLDR
The authors present a case of Buerger's disease in a patient who subsequently developed cerebral and bowel infarcts as well as cavernomatous transformation of the portal vein, suggesting that Buergers disease, although rare, does have a chronic aggressive nature in some patients.

TLDR
The mortality rate for patients with Buerger's disease is not higher than that for the rest of the adult population, but patients often require minor and major limb amputation due to ulcerations.

Diagnostic Criteria and Treatment of Buerger’s Disease: A Review
TLDR
A literature review revealed only a few series reporting vascular reconstruction (mainly femorodistal bypasses) in Buerger’s disease, andpass patency rates were suboptimal; however, the corresponding limb salvage rates were satisfactory.
