The article deals with the problem of decision making in management of chronic lower limb ischemia. After studying both the medical and the social consequences of different treatment methods as well as postoperative quality of life the authors proposed the working classification of chronic lower limb ischemia which is modification of Fontaine's. Authors conclude that as far as indications for reconstructive surgery in claudicants are relative, the possible social consequences of treatment must be considered in these patients.
