Clinical Description: Lower extremity bypass is a surgical procedure performed to improve blood circulation in the legs by creating a new pathway for blood flow around blocked or narrowed arteries. This is typically done using a graft, often a vein or synthetic material, to bypass the diseased segment of the artery, restoring blood flow to the lower extremities and alleviating symptoms such as pain and tissue damage caused by reduced blood supply. The logic in this definition aims to select for a cohort undergoing non emergent procedures. Further details to aid in the population level evaluation of this cohort will be posted to this thread.

Evaluation Conclusion: Pending
