Further, The Physiological Evaluation of CLI 39 there is the potential to fail to localize significant arterial disease proximally, particularly in obese individuals and to miss distal disease in small vessels so preventing accurate anatomical mapping. Obese individuals with type 2 diabetes are potentially a challenge for this modality. CDI, in common with invasive tests, does not reflect tissue perfusion. The efficacy of this technique remains intimately bound to the skills of the operator and the enthusiasm of the vascular clinician.

In a vascular evaluation, it is not just the presence of disease but also the impact of the disease on limb perfusion that needs quantifying. It is worth noting that the criterion standard for lower limb arterial assessment has been DSA. This is the criterion standard in terms of anatomical distribution of disease, but not in terms of the hemodynamic effects of atherosclerosis and the assessment of distal limb perfusion. In the evaluation of limb perfusion, other tests have the potential to afford better efficacy.

Critical and subcritical ischaemia. Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg 1997; 13(6):578–582. 9. Anonymous. D1 Definition and nomenclature for chronic critical limb ischemia. J Vasc Surg 2000; 31(suppl):S168–S175. 4 The Physiological Evaluation of Critical Lower Limb Ischemia Dean T. K. INTRODUCTION It is the aim of all vascular clinicians, where possible, to maintain the integrity and improve the function of ischemic lower limbs by increasing perfusion via the least perilous process. This risk/benefit balance is often a delicate one in individuals with multiple or severe comorbidities.
