Open vs. Endovascular Repair for Limb Salvage: Does Mode Matter?

Just posted: work from SALSA (Zhan, et al) at this year's upcoming Society for Vascular Surgery symposium. Summary: “Data suggest that with appropriate patient selection, each intervention is efficacious with respect to initial hemodynamic improvement. If the intermediate/long-term results of EVT for CLI in people with diabetes are inferior, the problem is not one of initial hemodynamic response, but more likely due to differing patient characteristics or durability of the intervention.”
