New Global Vascular Guidelines for CLTI patients now open for stakeholder comment

The draft Global Vascular Guidelines on chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI) have just been posted for open public comment until 3 December 2018. Michael S Conte (San Francisco, USA), one of the co-editors of the guidelines, told Vascular News at VEITHsymposium 2018 that there needs to be a pivot from a “lesion-first” mentality to evidence-based revascularisation, which involves thinking about the patient, the limb and the anatomy—in that order. The draft guideline materials are available at http://vsweb.org/GlobalVascularGuidelines.
