We each respond to treatments differently.
One-year vessel patency rates for endovascular procedures can be as low as 60%2.
It's time to use functional metrics, not ABI's, for measuring patient outcomes.
The 6-minute walk test is a validated test with decades of research3.
Activity metrics are the gold standard for measuring surgical outcomes4.
There are 525,600 minutes in the year, but we only monitor 90 of them.
We need physicians like you to help recruit patients to the study.
