About CLI

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI) affected 215 million people worldwide in 2015, predicted to be 230 million by 2020.1 CLI currently afflicts 2.8 to 3.5 million of those with PAD and is projected to rise to 4.5 to 5.6 million.2 Rates of amputations in the general population with PAD are declining, but amputations in CLI continue to escalate. It has been estimated that 25% of CLI patients will undergo major amputation. Prognosis with respect to limb preservation in CLI patients is poor, particularly in no-option CLI patients, where six-month major amputation rates have been reported to be as high as 50%.3 If something doesn’t change, the number of amputations due to CLI could exceed one million by 2030.
