This figure shows the forest plot for the amputation meta-analysis at the >5 year time point for the CLI population. The result was a summary estimated odds ratio for the seven observational studies of 1.06 (95% CI, 0.70 to 1.59, p=0.79) showing no statistically significant difference in revascularization strategies in the long term.
