Overview

The increasing incidence of diabetic foot ulcers and wounds creates challenges for practitioners regarding strategies to treat this complex comorbidity; however, not all practitioners are able to stay abreast of the most recent advances and techniques resulting in practice gaps among some patients.

This activity will provide an in-depth review of limb revascularization and wound care for patients with diabetes and update health care practitioners regarding the current understanding of the biologic basis of vascularization in diabetes, assessment and classification of wounds, and current therapies. Through a knowledgeable approach to treating this patient population, practitioners will be able to incorporate the latest research and clinical trial findings into their practice.
