Treatment of CLTI in patients with chronic kidney disease

Dr. Reimers and Dr. Ferraresi (Interventional Cardiologists, Milan, Italy) present an overview of the challenges and treatment options in patients with critical limb-threatening ischemia and chronic kidney disease (CKD). They explain the BAD and SAD classification and its impact on the final outcome. Finally, a comprehensive review of the literature regarding different treatment options in CKD and hemodialysis patients with CLI is provided.

Venous arterialisation for no option CLI: Limflow procedure

This case demonstrates the unique Limflow procedure for the so-called 'no option' CLI patients. This term is used for advanced disease with occlusion of the pedal arteries used for distal bypass or angioplasty targets. This 'desert foot' also represents an end-stage pathology that commonly leads to failure of all conventional revascularization attempts. In this video, you will learn the steps of the procedure, all devices needed and important technical tips and tricks for a successful outcome.
