The Infrapopliteal Global Limb Anatomic Staging System Predicts Wound Healing and Pain Relief After Partial Revascularization.


Chronic limb-threatening ischemia is frequently associated with crural artery occlusion. Complete revascularization beyond the diseased crural artery is preferable; however, complete revascularization is challenging in many cases for various reasons. On the other hand, partial reconstruction for inflow disease sometimes leads to complete relief of symptoms. It is not elucidated which patients may recover from chronic limb-threatening ischemia with partial revascularization. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the factors affecting outcomes after partial revascularization.
