English term or phrase:limb salvage rate
Kaplan Meier analysis shows a 12-month primary patency rate of 85.0% and a limb salvage rate of 98.0%. (Results of PTA)
Explanation: salvage = saved or rescued from destruction or restored to use
"limb salvage rate of 98.0%" means that 98% of the limbs (arms or legs) that were in danger of being permanently damaged and perhaps needing amputation because of loss of blood circulation were saved and returned to adequate health.
