Distal venous arterialisation for ‘no-option’ chronic limb-threatening ischaemia

March 29, 2022

Abstract Chronic limb-threatening ischaemia (CLTI), defined as significant peripheral arterial disease causing ischaemic rest pain and/or tissue loss, is associated with a high amputation and mortality rate. Avoiding amputation in CLTI is crucial and restoration of blood flow is usually achieved using endovascular or open surgical revascularisation. However, significant occlusion of the distal limb vasculature…
