Open revascularization approach is associated with healing and ambulation following transmetatarsal amputation in patients with chronic limb threatening ischemia #TMA #ActAgainstAmputation @UCSFvascular @ALPSlimb @vascularsvs

Congratulations to the UCSF toe and flow team on this important work

Article Highlights:

  • Type of Research: Multi-center retrospective cohort study
  • Key Findings: Patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia requiring transmetatarsal amputation had a higher rate of healing with open revascularization procedures as compared to endovascular. Additionally, post-operative community-level ambulation was more frequently achieved following open revascularization.
  • Take Home Message: Good healing and functional outcomes after transmetatarsal amputation in patients with chronic limb threatening ischemia may be more likely with open revascularization approaches.
