Paucis Verbis card: Acute limb ischemia

Thrombectomy acute limb ischemia

Acute limb ischemia (ALI) is a true vascular emergency. It doesn’t occur as frequently as the more high-profile conditions as cerebrovascular accidents and acute myocardial infarcts, but it portends similarly high morbidity and mortality risk.

  • How do you stage a patient with ALI, based on the Rutherford classification system?
  • What is the ED treatment plan?
  • Should this patient go to Interventional Radiology or the Operating Room for more definitive management?
