WHY IS CLI A PROBLEM?
The CLI Global Society recognizes the following contributing factors to the challenge of CLI:
- Lack of consensus on the definition of CLI
- Lack of awareness within the healthcare community and general public
- CLI morbidity and mortality are akin to the most aggressive cancer diagnoses
- Limited evidence-based research
- Lack of consensus on best methods to prevent, diagnosis, treat, and rehabilitate
- Limited number of dedicated CLI specialists
- No diagnosis code for CLI
- Costs for the treatment of CLI are among the greatest health care expenditure challenges today1
- Amputation often remains a first line treatment and results in major disability, loss of work productivity, and burdens to family and colleagues
