Dr Benjamin TATETE
Critical ischemia (blockage or insufficiency of blood circulation in a tissue or organ) of the lower limbs is increasingly observed, especially in elderly patients or those suffering from diabetes.
The diagnosis is based on the presence of ischemic pain (local anemia) at rest or trophic lesions in the foot and the objective measurement of hypoperfusion of the foot. The revascularization process decreases amputation rates.
Dr TATETE and team members practice here a femoro-peroneal bypass, a treatment of critical ischemia of the lower limbs.
