Acute limb ischemia is a vascular event presenting with sudden decrease in limb perfusion (of <14days' duration) that threatens limb viability. Acute thrombosis of the native artery or graft makes up the bulk of etiopathogenesis. Prompt revascularization is the cornerstone of management of acute limb ischemia in limbs that have not undergone irreversible tissue and nerve damage. Amputation is performed in patients with irreversible tissue and nerve damage.
