What is Critical Limb Ischemia?
Critical limb ischemia is an advanced and severe form of peripheral arterial disease. This condition drastically reduces blood flow to the lower body and lower extremities causing a variety of uncomfortable symptoms including pain in the feet and toes, open sores and ulcers on the legs and feet, and a numb or cold feeling in the feet that won't go away. Patients who have critical limb ischemia typically suffer from diabetes or have a history of having high cholesterol which can contribute to the main arteries in the body being blocked.
What Causes Critical Limb Ischemia?
Patients who suffer from critical limb ischemia suffer from peripheral arterial disease and have a blockage in their artery. Patients who experience this condition typically lead a sedentary or inactive lifestyle, suffer from diabetes, are obese, have a family history of high cholesterol, or are habitual smokers. Each of these factors contributes to the onset of this condition.
How Much do Treatments for Critical Limb Ischemia Cost?
