Research

  • *Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease.*
    To live with critical ischemia is often associated with great suffering for
    the patient, with pain and problems walking. An important role in the care of
    these patients is the opportunity to provide a relief of pain for the
    patient. To reach that goal it is important to develop an optimal treatment
    strategy.
    The aim with my thesis was to study patients with peripheral arterial
    disease regarding risk factors that can cause an amputation after vascular
    surgery. Risk factors for negative outcome after an amputation was
    also studied.
    Further patients that become an amputee have been studied regarding their
    experience about the decision of the amputation and their HRQoL before and
    one year after surgery.
