The European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) has developed guidelines for treating patients with acute limb ischaemia (ALI). The focus on the guidelines is on lower limb acute ischaemia; however recommendations are also made on acute upper limb ischaemia. The term acute leg ischaemia is not used, in order to avoid confusion, as the same abbreviation, “ALI”, may be used. These guidelines will provide guidance for emergency physicians; vascular, cardiovascular and general surgeons; angiologists; interventional radiologists; and radiologists. The target population comprises patients with acute lower and/or upper limb ischaemia. The guidelines, which are developed by specialists in the field, promote a high standard of care (based on evidence, whenever available). Guidelines should not be viewed as a legal standard of care. This document is a guiding support, and the care given to a patient will always be dependent on the individual (symptom variability, comorbidities, age, level of activity), and treatment setting (techniques available, local circumstances, and expertise). To further underline this supportive character of the Guidelines, non-European reviewers were invited to review the document, so that it could serve doctors treating patients globally. This is also the rationale behind the decision to publish all ESVS Guidelines as free to download, and why the ESVS Guidelines app also can be downloaded free of charge from the ESVS website

Abstract

The European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) has developed guidelines for treating patients with acute limb ischaemia (ALI). The focus on the guidelines is on lower limb acute ischaemia; however recommendations are also made on acute upper limb ischaemia. The term acute leg ischaemia is not used, in order to avoid confusion, as the same abbreviation, “ALI”, may be used. These guidelines will provide guidance for emergency physicians; vascular, cardiovascular and general surgeons; angiologists; interventional radiologists; and radiologists. The target population comprises patients with acute lower and/or upper limb ischaemia. The guidelines, which are developed by specialists in the field, promote a high standard of care (based on evidence, whenever available). Guidelines should not be viewed as a legal standard of care. This document is a guiding support, and the care given to a patient will always be dependent on the individual (symptom variability, comorbidities, age, level of activity), and treatment setting (techniques available, local circumstances, and expertise). To further underline this supportive character of the Guidelines, non-European reviewers were invited to review the document, so that it could serve doctors treating patients globally. This is also the rationale behind the decision to publish all ESVS Guidelines as free to download, and why the ESVS Guidelines app also can be downloaded free of charge from the ESVS website
