OBJECTIVES Renal insufficiency is a risk factor for poor outcome after infrainguinal bypass in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) takes age, gender and body size into account and therefore represents actual renal function more accurately than serum creatinine level alone. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of different stages of renal insufficiency on outcome and to assess the prognostic significance of eGFR in patients with… CONTINUE READING
