Gangrene is caused by infection or ischemia, such as by the bacteria Clostridium perfringens or by a blocked blood vessel. It is usually the result of critically insufficient blood supply and is often associated with diabetes and long-term tobacco smoking. This condition is most common in the lower extremities.

Other treatments include debridement and surgical amputation.
