abstract

  • In patients presenting with rest pain and tissue loss who are treated with SFA percutaneous interventions, patency is negatively affected by compromised and poor runoffs in keeping with the bypass literature. More importantly, freedom from recurrent symptoms and limb salvage are incrementally curtailed as runoff scores worsen. These findings are consistent with the bypass literature.
