Abstract:

We read with great interest Prendes et al.’ s commentary on lower limb revascularisation in low and middle income countries (LMICs). It has become increasingly apparent that the burden of vascular diseases disproportionally affects vulnerable and LMIC populations as a result of the epidemiological transition away from infectious diseases and towards non-communicable diseases, as a result of the rise in smoking, air pollution, obesity, diabetes, and trauma. Access to emergency and essential vascular surgical care, however, is grossly lacking in LMICs.
