Non-Invasive and Invasive Vascular Assessment: Which Study Should be Ordered?
This session will provide an algorithm for the comprehensive vascular assessment of the patient with extremity wounds including the roles of noninvasive physiologic testing and transcutaneous oxygen testing. A pathway for the use and indications for ultrasound diagnostic imaging, computerized axial tomograms, magnetic resonance imaging, and invasive imaging of both the arterial and venous tree will be defined.

Offloading: Preventing and Treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Offloading plays a key role in facilitating healing and preventing recurrence of diabetic foot wounds. This session will explain the pathophysiology of diabetic ulcer formation, neuropathic and neuroischemic diabetic foot ulcers, the common structural changes in the diabetic foot, and the forces that must be addressed to allow healing to occur. Additionally, strategies to prevent wound recurrence will be addressed. Presenters will critically examine common conditions prevalent in diabetic patients that make offloading a challenge. Current offloading techniques for ulcer prevention and healing will be explored.

The Challenge of Chronic Osteomyelitis: Diagnosis and Treatment
The recognition and management of osteomyelitis in the diabetic foot wound remains a complex challenge for wound care professionals. From defining osteomyelitis to diagnostic approaches and management, clinicians often find themselves challenged with multiple dilemmas such as when to consider medical versus surgical approaches, including the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This session will discuss the most important clinical aspects leading to proper recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of osteomyelitis in the diabetic foot wound, and essential steps in successful patient-centered outcomes.

This continuing nursing education activity awards up to 0.25 pharmacology hours.

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Treating Critical Limb Ischemia
When treating patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI), therapeutic goals include vascular risk factor reduction, relieving ischemic pain, healing ulcers, preventing major amputation, improving quality of life, and increasing survival. In a case-based format, this session will review a variety of clinical presentations and advanced interventional strategies for patients with CLI and significant tissue loss.

This continuing nursing education activity awards up to 0.25 pharmacology hours.

Bioengineered Tissue
When used properly, advanced therapeutic options such as tissue-engineered devices can be very useful in treating non-healing and difficult to heal wounds. This session will comprehensively review the techniques and procedure management necessary to maximize healing when using tissue-engineered skin products.

Arterial Interventions
Arterial or ischemic ulcers, which may start simply from trauma, have impaired healing due to peripheral arterial disease. If not treated in a timely manner, these wounds become infected, may have extended tissue necrosis, and may eventually lead to amputation. The key to treatment is improvement in the vascular perfusion to the affected area. Patients with ischemic ulcers should be referred to a vascular surgeon to determine if revascularization is needed and to plan the procedure. This session will review revascularization techniques for arterial ulcers.

Healthcare Reform and the Wound Team
After the 2012 election, the Affordable Care Act is firmly in place. Many changes can be expected and in order to stay ahead of the curve, the practitioner needs to spend time understanding what is available to patients under the new law. Come to this provoking session led by leaders in wound care with health policy expertise to learn how healthcare reform will impact the delivery of care in the wound center, hospital, or office. The audience will gain knowledge into the practice and coverage changes as a result of the 2010 Affordable Care Act.
