Chronic critical limb ischemia (CCI) is the most severe clinical form of occlusive arterial disease. Its prognosis is terrible, mortality estimated at 50% in five years. However there are no recent epidemiological data on morbidity and mortality of critical ischemia. Moreover, the diagnostic criteria of the ICC associate clinical and hemodynamic criteria and are not subject to a clear consensus.
Investigators propose to evaluate the validated diagnostic criteria (TASC VALMI, European working group) in a population of severe ischemia in patients in order to offer relevant simple and reproducible criteria. Secondly Investigators propose to monitor the medium and long term evolution of these patients ICC defined to clarify the prognosis.
diagnostic criteria of the different societies:
- TASC: Transatlantic criteria: very characteristic pain, wound optional, variable hemodynamic criteria as the presence of a wound or not
- VALMI: French criteria derived vascular medical college: characteristic pain, sore, hemodynamic reproducible, reliable criteria
- European working group: European definition of criteria, including a characteristic pain, requires no wound, different hemodynamic criteria of 2 others.
Main objective / secondary:
- Main objective: Evaluation of diagnostic criteria for chronic critical limb ischemia
- Secondary objectives:
- Evaluation of the quality of life,
- Evaluation of the need for psychological counseling a patient at the stage of chronic critical limb ischemia,
- Evaluation of the interest of a specific bioassay
Development of the study:
The offer document and the non-opposition of the patient will be collected on the first day of hospitalization, quality of life questionnaires will also be distributed at the beginning of hospitalization.
Clinical data will be collected during hospitalization of the patient, respecting their anonymity, only the place of birth shall be retained in terms of data that distinguish patients.
During the consultation of control, a half months post-hospitalization, diagnostic criteria will be reviewed and the quality of life (using the same questionnaire) and the need or not for psychological help (oral question).
The doctor will be called between 3 and 6 months following hospitalization to assess her patient monitoring criteria, rhythm monitoring, the psychological impact of the disease on the patient seen by the physician, assessment loss of independence due to illness.
The number of hospitalizations for chronic critical ischemia of six months shall be obtained.
Design: Prospective, mono centric, non-interventional (observational) consecutive patients attending the service Vascular Medicine.
Study duration: 6 months: about 150 to 180 patients included in the study, about 50 have clinical chronic critical limb ischemia criteria.
- No intervention Other
Intervention Desc: The is no intervention. This study is a descriptive one
- Observation: Cohort
- Perspective: Prospective
- Sampling: Non-Probability Sample
All patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs hospitalized in vascular medicine department of GHPSJ (Groupe Hospitalier Paris Saint Joseph) and having a life expectancy greater than one year.
