  • INTRODUCTION Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) who undergo major lower extremity amputation (LEA) have been associated with high one-year mortality rates. Previous western-based studies have identified risk factors that exponentiate these poor outcomes, including non-ambulatory status and cardiovascular morbidity. We assessed the effect of frailty, using the modified Frailty Index (mFI) in a cohort undergoing major LEA for CLI to predict mortality, peri-operative complications and… CONTINUE READING
