Pedal arterial calcification score is associated with hemodynamic change and major amputation after infrainguinal revascularization for chronic limb-threatening ischemia #ActAgainstAmputation @ALPSlimb @UCSFVascular

pMAC / Pedal Medial Arterial Calcification Score Yet more important work from our Toe- and Flowmigos @ UCSF. Objective: Pedal medial arterial calcification (pMAC) is associated with major amputation in patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI). We hypothesize that this association would be related to unresolved distal ischemia. We investigated relationships across pMAC score, hemodynamic change,... Continue Reading →

Biomarkers of Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral Bone Disorder (CKD-MBD) in the Diabetic Foot: A Medical Record Review

Make the link between chronic kidney disease, pedal calcification...and even Charcot? This from our SALSAmigos at Washington University, St. Louis. Aims: Determine the prevalence and relative risk of having single and combinations of biomarkers of chronic kidney disease-mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD) syndrome in the diabetic foot from an electronic medical record (EMR) review. Methods: Review of 152... Continue Reading →

Below-the-ankle arterial disease: a new marker of coronary artery disease in patients with diabetes and foot ulcers

Important work from our long-time friends Luigi Uccioli and coworkers. Some, including our friend Elissa Altin of Yale, have suggested that this might lead to us getting radiographs to identify arterial calcification that could help identify PAD, CLTI and even CAD. What do you think? Aim: The aim of the current study is to evaluate the... Continue Reading →
