Management of Critical Limb Threatening Ischaemia

16th February 2022, 18:30 to 19:30 GMT

Overview

Sri Lanka is a lower-middle-income South Asian country with increasing life expectancy and diabetes mellitus resulting in an epidemic of critical limb-threatening ischaemia complicated by infective necrosis.
Resource limits, i.e. Multidisciplinary teams including Vascular surgeons, interventionalists, Catheter laboratories & disposables, podiatrists, orthotics and wound care services, have demanded acceptance of shortcomings and deviation from global guidelines such as contrast angiography, graft surveillance and specialist diabetic foot care.
In this webinar, early and late clinical outcomes in those revascularized will be presented and compared with SVS benchmarks and other reported long-term outcomes.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar, attendees should have an understanding of:

  • The challenges to limb salvage in a resource-poor South Asian setting.
  • Outcomes for limbs and life from colour duplex guided vein bypass surgery without graft surveillance or re-interventions.
  • Outcomes for limbs and life from plain balloon angioplasty and no stents or re-interventions.
