Toe go or not toe go: If the question is will you get an arteriogram/surgery for the gangrene toe by 7/15, well anything is possible with persistence. If you already have an arteriogram +/- surgery scheduled and you are asking will the gangrene toe delay the procedure/surgery,, as an ER doctor, I refer cases to more types of surgeons that anyone and this will likely be surgeon dependent based on physical exam.
