Best Endovascular vs. Best Surgical Therapy in Patients With Critical Limb Ischemia


Brief description of study

This study will compare the effectiveness of best available surgical treatment with best available endovascular treatment in adults with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who are eligible for both treatment options.

Detailed Study Description

Male and female subjects aged 18 years or older will be randomized to receive either open surgical treatment or endovascular treatment. They will be followed for at least 2 years and up to 4 years and 2 months after treatment to primarily assess survival and major adverse limb events in the index or treated limb, and secondarily, to determine clinical and cost effectiveness outcomes after treatment. These outcomes (survival-free of major limb events and clinical, functional and cost effectiveness) will be compared within two cohorts of subjects: those with an available single-segment great saphenous vein, and those with an alternative conduit. The null hypotheses for both cohorts is that there will be no difference in MALE-free survival between best endovascular therapy and best surgical therapy.
