Improved appreciation and understanding of peripheral arterial disease in general and critical limb ischemia more particularly has been fostered by and has driven developments in novel techniques and technology required to treat the heterogeneous anatomic and therapeutic challenges posed by this disease. The affected patient population tends to be uniquely sick, afflicted with multiple comorbidities and at risk for severe adverse outcomes. Even so, conventional approaches involving incomplete or indirect revascularization, failure to provide timely, thorough preoperative non-invasive or angiographic evaluation and primary amputation are still widely seen in practice. Systematic application of new diagnostic and interventional techniques, new concepts in wound care and an expanded palette of wound care products have yielded significant improvements in amputation free survival and increased patient and provider satisfaction. Despite clear progress slow rates of adoption and inconsistent utilization of endovascular approaches to limb preservation have retarded the decline in major amputation rates in many areas.
ASCENT was conceived and convened to provide a concentrated exposure to the most contemporary concepts in areas relevant to the evaluation and care of the patient with CLI in an informal, collegial setting. The format was developed to combine a rigorous approach to fundamental concepts, concise updates on the most current information from the peer review literature and ongoing clinical trials as well as a practical hands-on introduction to the increasingly diverse and complex interventional toolbox required to deliver therapy effectively.
Confernece Objectives are:
Upon completion of this program for CMEs, the attendee should be able to:
• Recognize the patient at risk for significant tissue loss and develop an efficient, comprehensive diagnostic strategy that directs the patient to appropriate therapeutic options.
• Understand the role of various limb preservation strategies and how to employ them to minimize tissue loss in the at risk patient.
• Understand and describe the anatomic substrates associated with various presentations of CLI with reference to the angiosome model.
• Understand and employ Color Duplex imaging as an adjunct to vascular access to the appropriate angiosome.
• Recognize the anatomic substrates in which multiple access intervention may be advantageous.
• Recognize, describe and effectively prevent or deal with common complications of endovascular procedures.
• Develop an efficient, cost effective interventional inventory for the Limb Preservation Program.
• Identify the necessary components of an effective Limb Preservation Program.
• Identify and effectively triage or manage the various classes of lower extremity ulcers encountered in a Limb Preservation referral practice.
• Describe and appropriately employ the various tissue modification technologies available for the treatment of the CLI patient.
• Understand and acknowledge the desirability of a multidisciplinary approach to Limb Preservation.
