An improved bone transport surgical method for treating chronic ischemic ulcers (thromboangiitis obliterans).


The chronic ischemic injury of the upper/lower limbs caused by thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO, Buerger's disease) is difficult to heal, leading to high morbidity and amputation risk, seriously lowering the quality of life of patients. So far, the pathogenesis of this disease is still not clear, and there are still no effective therapeutic approaches. Here, we first use an improved bone transport technique to treat TAO-related foot ulcers and achieve good therapeutic effects.
