Patients are often faced with complications including long hospital stays, wound infection, osteomyelitis and limb loss due to challenges associated with healing full-thickness wounds. With no clear consensus regarding the best methodology for closure, the technique applied each time is largely the surgeon’s preference. This webinar will review a collection of multiple case reports on select patients with significant co-morbidities and complex wounds who were at high risk for proximal amputation of the affected limbs.
This Course is designed for Clinicians who are responsible for the prevention of skin breakdown throughout the continuum of care, such as, ICU, Acute Care, Long Term Care, LTACHs, Home Health Care, as well as Physicians, DPMs, Nurses, PTs and Caregivers who treat Chronic & Acute Wounds.
