Femoral regional perfusions and continuous intraarterial infusions 
were used for the treatment of 84 patients.  The 0,15-0,25 % solution 
of H2O2 was used as the oxygenator.  The methods used when combined 
with sympathectomy allowed to restrict the operation by a parcimonious 
amputation of the extremity and to retain the knee joint in most of 
the patients.
