Critical Limb Ischaemia - Practical Clinical Training Including the Safe Use of Current Medical Devices, Rome (IT), June 23-24, 2017

Programme | Local Hosts | Faculty | Venue | Accommodation

 

Critical limb ischaemia (CLI) is the most severe expression of peripheral artery disease (PAD). It is associated with a high rate of major amputation and mortality due to advance systemic cardiovascular disease. The goals of treating patients with CLI not only include the prevention of limb loss, but also to relieve pain, improve quality of life and prevent death. Organised and led by renowned experts, the Critical Limb Ischaemia Clinical Procedure Training course gives experienced physicians the opportunity to fine-tune their practical skills and learn more about current treatment options for this difficult disease.

Theoretical presentations will be organised to analyse the different aspects of CLI as a disease, including its diagnosis, current research and treatment options. Hands-on sessions will then provide the opportunity to handle current devices and to learn about the most advanced technologies fit for CLI treatment. Due to the complexity of treating CLI, collaboration between specialists is paramount; hence, there will be a multidisciplinary team discussion as part of the course. A section of the programme will also be dedicated to recorded case discussions, which will be discussed thereafter with the faculty and participants. Finally, a special session will be held in an informal setting to allow attendees present their cases and exchange ideas with other colleagues and faculty members.

We hope you can join us at the prestigious Sapienza University in Rome for this exciting course!

 

 

      Critical Limb Ischaemia and the Diabetic Foot Patient

As the prevalence of peripheral artery disease (PAD) rapidly rises, minimally invasive endovascular procedures to treat this disease have also subsequently risen. This video filmed at CIRSE 2016, shows the most advanced stage of peripheral artery disease, critical limb ischaemia (CLI) and how the CLI, or diabetic foot, patient differs from the average PAD patient.
