Diabetic complications in the lower extremities, especially those secondary to diabetic macroangiopathy, have increasingly become a clinical emergency, given the high prevalence and progression of the disease. Until recently, the only approach to treating advanced stage disease was medical therapy and major amputation; however, the advent of revascularization procedures has radically improved the prognosis of patients with critical lower limb ischemia. In this setting, iloprost holds a dual position: as first-choice therapy in patients ineligible for revascularization and as complementary therapy in candidates for surgical or endovascular revascularization.
