AIMS To evaluate the feasibility of peripheral revascularization by angioplasty (PTA) or bypass grafting (BPG) in diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). METHODS All diabetic patients referred to our Diabetic Foot Centre for foot lesion or rest pain were assessed for the presence of CLI as assessed by the TASC criteria. All patients underwent angiography that was evaluated jointly by an interventional radiologist, a vascular surgeon and a diabetologist of the diabetic foot care… CONTINUE READING
