Diagnosis of Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI)

The vascular specialist will assess the status of the disease by conducting a physical exam. He or she will want to ascertain what procedures or treatments have occurred in the past and what other conditions you have such as diabetes, or heart disease. In addition, diagnostic tests will be performed to determine the severity of the disease and to identify the best treatment plan.
