Caused by embolism or thrombosis, acute limb ischemia is considered a vascular emergency and you need proper treatment at the right time.
Acute Limb Ischemia (ALI) is a severe condition that has high mortality and amputation rates. It is caused by a sudden decrease in limb perfusion that makes limb viability at risk. In ALI, there is insufficient time for new blood vessel growth to compensate for the loss of perfusion. The sudden ischemia affects all active tissues of the limb including muscles and nerves. Therefore, urgent diagnosis and recognition with prompt revascularization are necessary to preserve limb viability and prevent further damage.
Dr. Hiten Patel, a renowned vascular surgeon in Vadodara and India has gained fame for treating acute limb ischemia conditions successfully.
