Atherectomy and Critical Limb Ischemia: A Treatment Approach for Severely Calcified Vessels

Monday 09/30/13 | 32,397 reads

ABSTRACT: Incidence of critical limb ischemia (CLI) is estimated at 1% to 2% worldwide and is expected to rise. CLI with isolated infrapopliteal (IP) disease is seen mainly in elderly, diabetic, or dialysis-dependent patients. These patients exhibit calcified IP vessels, which put them at higher risk of amputation compared to those with combined femoropopliteal and IP disease. CLI patients with systolic ankle pressure <50 mmHg, nonpulsatile plethysmographic tracing, and/or transcutaneous oxygen pressure <30 mmHg would benefit from revascularization. continue reading
