Amputation Prevention Symposium

Session 12: AMP: The Impact of Restoring Flow in Order to Preserve Limbs

Friday, November 2
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Forum 7-10

In this session the concept of restoring flow to the lower extremities in order to relieve pain, heal wounds and improve quality of life will be presented. The session will begin with depictions of how undiagnosed or failures of treatment result in amputations, then attendees will gain knowledge of different levels of amputations available. This session will also focus on various strategies to improve the flow at each anatomic level in order to achieve amputation prevention.
