    Abstract

    Limb salvage, operative mortality and short and long term graft patency have long been important variables for assessment of infrainguinal arterial reconstructions. More recently it is now appreciated that patient and society oriented measures of outcomes in determining the effectiveness of any surgical procedure are also important. In particular, the impact of an intervention on a patient's overall quality of life (QOL) and whether it is cost effective in achieving improvement of QOL are questions of increasing importance from the patient's perspective and from the perspective of those who must make difficult health policy decisions. This chapter reviews the cost effectiveness and impact of infrainguinal bypass on patient perceived quality of life in patients with intermittent claudication and patients with critical limb ischemia. The data are not robust but suggest favorable impact of infrainguinal bypass in terms of both QOL and cost effectiveness in both patients with intermittent claudication and critical limb ischemia.
