Heel Wounds Predict Poor Outcomes After Infrapopliteal Revascularization
This study determines whether CLTI patients with heel wounds are at higher risk of mortality, major amputation, or failure to heal their wounds compared to patients with forefoot wounds undergoing revascularization for infrapopliteal arterial disease.
Pedal bypass versus endovascular tibial intervention for ischemic foot wounds
This is a retrospective chart review comparing the outcomes (wound healing rate, patency rate, and amputation-free survival) between pedal bypass and endovascular tibial interventions in 668 limbs of CLTI patients with ischemic wounds and an infrapopliteal intervention.
Perforators: When to treat and how best to do it?
This presentation answers the questions of why, when and how to treat perforating veins in patients with healed or active venous ulcers. Moreover, we present the results of our study Hager et al. Factors that Influence Perforator Vein Closure Rates Using Radiofrequency Ablation, Laser Ablation or Foam Sclerotherapy. (J Vasc Surg, accepted for publication) in 296 perforators.
