OBJECTIVE To compare a 'bypass-surgery-first' with a 'balloon-angioplasty-first' revascularisation strategy in patients with severe limb ischaemia (SLI) due to infrainguinal disease requiring immediate/early revascularisation. DESIGN A stratified randomised controlled trial. A Delphi consensus study of vascular surgeons' and interventional radiologists' views on SLI treatment was performed before the trial. SETTING Twenty-seven UK hospitals. PARTICIPANTS Patients presenting with SLI as… CONTINUE READING
