The angiosome principle was first described by Jan Taylor in 1987 in the plastic reconstructive surgery field, providing useful information on the vascular anatomy of the human body. Particularly concerning foot and ankle ischemic pathology, it may help the clinician to better select revascularization strategies for specific territories that exhibit tissue loss.
Although without confirmed clinical evidence at the present time, this knowledge may be surprisingly beneficial when treating diabetic or renal patients with ischemic foot wounds in peculiar regions that associate poor collateral compensatory circulation.
The present volume has a difficult task to fulfil; it gathers recent clinical data regarding new applications, results and perspectives of this new concept, in a field that still remains controversial.
The implementation of angiosome-based strategies in infragenicular CL I treatment may afford encouraging wound healing and limb preservation rates by using both bypass and endovascular techniques; however, further clinical experience in multicentric and prospective trials will be needed to ascertain this novel theory.
