Transcutaneous oxygen tension in patients with critical limb ischemia treated by spinal cord stimulation

  • Conference paper

Abstract

In patients with PAOD, critical blood supply of muscle tissue and skin causes pain at rest and acral skin necrosis or gangrene. Pain at rest is usually localized in the forefoot. It is a severe pain, often continuous and typically worsening at night.
