A Global Focus on Critical Limb Ischemia

A Global Focus on Critical Limb Ischemia
Cardiology Today's Intervention, September/October 2017

In 2016, a group of physicians from various areas of medicine came together with the goal to help shine a light on the growing epidemic of advanced peripheral artery disease and critical limb ischemia. Today, the Critical Limb Ischemia Global Society is a multidisciplinary, not-for-profit, membership-based medical society with a commitment to raise public, patient and health professional awareness of CLI and prevent unnecessary amputations and related deaths.

The CLI Global Society founding members are Alan T. Hirsch, MD; Michael R. Jaff, DO; Barry T. Katzen, MD; Jihad A. Mustapha, MD; Dierk Scheinert, MD; and Frank J. Veith, MD.
