OBJECTIVE Infrainguinal angioplasty provides a minimally invasive alternative to bypass surgery in patients with critical ischemia. This study aimed to determine the 2-year patency, limb salvage, and survival rates in patients who underwent infrainguinal angioplasty in a unit where angioplasty is used preferentially whenever possible for critical ischemia. METHODS A total of 333 consecutive patients who presented with rest pain, tissue loss, or both and who underwent an infrainguinal… CONTINUE READING
