About Chronic Limb-
Threatening Ischemia (CLTI)
A Life With CLTI
Living with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) that progresses to CLTI is challenging. Life revolves around chronic leg pain that can become unbearable over time. The end stage of the disease is characterized by non-healing foot ulcers that considerably lessen mobility and quality of life.
Finally, and often after several medical interventions, the result is major amputation of the lower leg to resolve chronic pain and non-healing wounds, or to prevent progression of gangrene and sepsis. Major limb amputation is a drastic, life-changing step, and LimFlow was designed to provide a new option for these patients.
