This graphic illustrates the influence of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) on different complications in lower extremity procedures. It compares outcomes such as death, amputation rate, amputation below the knee (BTK), amputation above the knee, and minor amputations between cases with IVUS use and cases without IVUS use. The study findings demonstrate a consistent trend: the utilization of IVUS/intracoronary imaging in lower extremity procedures is associated with a reduced risk of post-procedural complications and a lower likelihood of amputation.
