Near Infrared Spectroscopy and Transcutaneous Oxygen Pressure in Critical Limb Ischemia Before and After Treatment (NIRS)
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Critical Limb Ischemia
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Comparison of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) and Transcutaneous Oxygen Pressure (TCPO2) Measurements in Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) Patients After Invasive Treatment (Endovascular or Surgery)|
- tissue oxygenation [ Time Frame: the outcome will be assessed during the hospital stay up to a week ]
|Study Start Date:||July 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||November 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Comparison of two non-invasive methods for measuring tissue oxygenation. One is TCPO2 and the other is the new method of NIRS - near infrared spectroscopy in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) undergoing invasive treatment (surgical or endovascular).
The NIRS probe has been used to measure tissue oxygenation in the cerebral circulation up to now. While TCPO2 is the established method for measuring tissue oxygenation in patients with CLI to evaluate the potential for wound healing.
