- Consider vascular pathologies in all of your patients with atraumatic limb pain - especially those with typical and atypical risk factors
- Early diagnosis is imperative. Time is tissue. Catch this as early as possible. Pain is the earliest symptom. First presents with pain then paresthesia then paralysis
- Perform vascular exam on every patient with pain
- If concerned for ischemic limb, call the vascular surgeon and get patient to CT for imaging of aorta and affected limb.
