Abstract

A total of 261 diabetic patients were admitted because of rest pain and/or foot ulcer in 1 limb. Ankle pressure (AP) and transcutaneous oxygen tension (TcPO2) were measured, and digital subtraction arteriography was performed. Transcutaneous oxygen tension was 50% of vessel lumen diameter in all patients. Major amputation was performed in 16 patients; AP was 2 is essential not only when AP is not measurable but also when this value is ≥70 mm Hg.
