What is Critical Limb Ischemia?
Critical limb ischemia is a severe and advanced form of peripheral arterial disease that severely reduces blood flow to the lower body and can cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms including pain in the feet and toes, numbness in the feet, and open sores and ulcers that never fully heal. Patients who have critical limb ischemia may also suffer from diabetes and have a family history of high cholesterol, which may contribute to the main arteries becoming blocked.
What Causes Critical Limb Ischemia?
While the main cause of critical limb ischemia is severe artery blockage, many patients who experience this condition may also experience a number of risk factors. Factors that may contribute to critical limb ischemia include diabetes, obesity, habitual smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, and a family history of high cholesterol or atherosclerosis.
How Much Does Treatment for Critical Limb Ischemia Cost?
The cost of your critical limb ischemia treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage.
