Today, chronic limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) due to diabetic arterial disease is a major worldwide cause of morbidity and mortality,1,2 affecting a large number of patients and can lead to severe disabilities.
Revascularization is the key therapy in these patients because re-establishing adequate blood supply to the foot is necessary to relieve clinical symptoms related to CLTI and to avoid major amputations.3
An endovascular-first approach has increased in acceptance for the treatment of diabetic patients with CLTI due to good clinical results.4-5
At the same time, rapidly evolving technologies in diagnostics and devices offer new opportunities to improve treatment and to address unmet needs in this vulnerable population. 6
We are striving for technical improvements and refinements to support endovascular treatment of BTK and BTA atherosclerotic disease.
