MEDLINE was searched using the following key words: "cilostazol", "ulcerations", "chronic critical limb ischemia", and "peripheral arterial disease". The literature search did not find articles in the English language that analyzed cilostazol in the setting of chronic critical limb ischemia. Consequently, a case series was prepared on the use of cilostazol in the treatment of lower extremity ischemic ulcerations.
