Aims and objectives: Acute limb is ischaemia (ALLI) is defined as any sudden decrease in, or worsening of, limb perfusion causing a threat to extremity mobility and viability that has been present for less than 14 days. Early restoration of blood flow in ALLI is crucial to preserve the viability of the limb[...]
Methods and materials: Consecutive cases of endovascular treatment for ALLI between 2006 and 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic data was collected. Technical success (>99% clot removal without distal emboli resistant to minor additional clot removal techniques) , clinical success (return to premorbid Ruthe[...]
Results: Patient demongraphics 117 procedures were performed in 94 patients. 28 surgical bypass grafts, 31 stented arteries and 61 native vessels were treated. 29 cases (25%) were managed with PMT and 88 cases (75%) were managed with CDT. PMT Devices used included Angiojet (Bost[...]
Conclusion: PMT is associated with a higher technical success and shorter duration of hospitalisation, with comparable terms of clinical success, limb salvage, and safety profile to CDT. ESRF seems to be a risk factor for poor clinical outcome in our cohort of patients treated for ALLI. As comparable clinical o[...]
