OBJECTIVE Noninvasive arterial studies have been used to determine level of amputation. The objective of this study was to examine each component of the noninvasive arterial studies to determine optimal cut points to predict healing and to evaluate whether physiologic maneuvers could improve the utility of transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2) values to predict healing of partial foot amputation. DESIGN The authors conducted a retrospective, observational study of 307 patients who underwent… CONTINUE READING
