PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that lower extremity transcutaneous oxygen (TcPO2) measurements can accurately predict severity of foot ischemia and can be used to select appropriate treatment (conservative versus operative) for patients with diabetes and tissue necrosis or ischemic rest pain. METHODS Fifty-five patients with 66 limbs were prospectively treated from June 1993 to July 1994.
