Computed tomography angiography limb ischaemia

  • What is a CT angiogram of the limbs?

    CT angiography combines a CT scan with the injection of dye.
    This technique is able to create pictures of the blood vessels in the arms or legs..

  • What is a CTA for lower extremity ischemia?

    Lower extremity computed tomography angiography (CTA) is an effective, noninvasive and robust imaging modality that is used in the assessment of symptomatic lower extremity vascular disease..

  • What is the best imaging for limb ischemia?

    Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) and Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA).

  • Both magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and computed tomography angiography (CTA) are capable of identifying the location and grade of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with high accuracy, and both modalities can be used to manage the entire spectrum of patients with suspected or known PAD.

Oct 30, 2018Here, we examine the presentation, evaluation, and treatment of ALI and the role of CTA in diagnosis and therapy. Keywords: Acute limb ischemia 
Oct 30, 2018Proper evaluation of the etiology of the ischemia, affected vasculature, and medical history is critical to select appropriate treatment and 
In the setting of trauma with ALI, CT imaging is the standard to evaluate the extent of bone and soft tissue injury but can also identify altered vascular anatomy not apparent on conventional angiography. Cross-sectional imaging, although obtained in axial data, can be reformatted in multiple planes.

Occurs when there is a sudden lack of blood flow to a limb

Acute limb ischaemia (ALI) occurs when there is a sudden lack of blood flow to a limb, within 14 days of symptoms onset.
It is different from another condition which is more chronic called critical limb ischemia (CLD).
CLD is the end stage of peripheral vascular disease where there is still some collateral circulation (alternate circulation pathways} that bring some blood to the distal parts of the limbs.
While limbs in both acute and chronic limb ischemia may be pulseless, a chronically ischemic limb is typically warm and pink due to a well-developed collateral artery network and does not need emergency intervention to avoid limb loss.
