  1. Treatment, in-hospital complications and outcome of Rutherford grade 5 and Rutherford grade 6 patients with and without diabetes (DM+/DM−). Data are given as patient numbers and percentages related to the respective subgroup. Statistical significance was tested via contingency table, p values <0.05 are considered significant
  2. Italic values are statistically significant
  3. DM diabetes mellitus; EVR endocascular revascularization; TEA thrombartherectomy; ARF acute renal failure; AMI acute myocardial infarction
