Last verified: August 2012
Prospective cohort study of consecutive diabetic patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in whom development of critical limb ischemia was prospectively assessed by a dedicated diabetic foot clinic. Cardiac mortality at 4-year follow-up was the primary endpoint of the study.

Condition Intervention
Critical Limb Ischemia
Procedure: PCI

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Further study details as provided by Ospedale San Donato:
