BACKGROUND: Improvement in the activity of daily living (ADL) is a goal of treatment for critical limb ischemia (CLI). The aim of this study was to identify factors affecting the in-hospital ADL and to investigate the relationship between change in the ADL after surgery and the long-term outcomes.
METHODS: A total of 271 patients who underwent infrainguinal bypass for CLI from 2005 to 2017 were reviewed. ADL was classified into 4 levels based on the Barthel Index (BI): BI ≥91, 90-61, 60-21, and ≤20. Patients were divided into 3 groups based on the change in the in-hospital ADL: group A (amelioration or discharge BI=100), group B (no change) and group C (deterioration or discharge BI=0). The predictors for amelioration or deterioration of the ADL were examined by a multivariate analysis and the three-year overall survival (OS) and amputation-free survival (AFS) of the three groups were determined by Kaplan-Meier’s method.
RESULTS: Significant factors influencing the amelioration and deterioration of the in-hospital ADL were the age, history of stroke, and BI on admission, and the age and Fontaine 4, respectively. The OS was significantly better in group A than groups B and C, and the AFS was better in group A than in group B.
CONCLUSIONS: A lower age, higher BI on admission, and no history of stroke are important factors influencing the decision-making regarding bypass surgery for CLI.
