Implement procedural and technological advances in wound care practices for patients facing major amputation due to advanced PAD, advanced non-healing wounds, and gangrene.

Identify the components necessary to build a multidisciplinary amputation prevention program.

Implement a diagnostic algorithm which includes selective angiography as a critical step for patients with CLI who are at risk for amputation.

Incorporate advanced tibiopedal access in combination with antegrade access in limb salvage procedures.

Describe tips and tricks for safe and effective surgical and endovascular treatment of CLI from access to closure.

Describe unique considerations when evaluating the diabetic foot ulcer in the setting of CLI.

Describe currently available drug eluting technology for the treatment of above-the-knee and below-the-knee lesions in the patient with CLI.
