Abstract

Assessed herein are the results of treating a total of 119 patients presenting with chronic critical ischaemia of the lower extremities accompanied by necrosis of distal portions of the foot. All patients underwent various successful operations of lower-limb revascularization, followed by evaluating the terms of healing of the wounds on the foot after necrectomy and minor amputations. A conclusion was made that after successful limb revascularization for critical ischaemia in patients with atherosclerosis accompanied by coagulative necrosis, performing minor amputations and necrectomies should be delayed.
