On behalf of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), we would like to invite you to attend our inaugural educational opportunity, Translating Guidelines into Practice: Global Vascular Guidelines on the Management of Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia (CLTI).
• Review the rationale and benefit for use of a limb-based anatomy staging system for CLTI (GLASS); how to perform GLASS staging from angiographic data using the on-line calculator.
• Review available data linking GLASS staging to revascularization outcomes .
• Discuss the potential impact of pedal artery disease on outcomes of revascularization and the current tools to both assess and potentially treat it
• Discuss current evidence on the risks and benefits of drug-eluting devices in CLTI.
Please download the SVS iPG from the Apple Store and Google Play Store for this session.
This session will be helpful in expanding physician knowledge base and improving clinical confidence and effectiveness in treating patients with CLTI. The last session of the series will address revascularization. This session will cover GLASS, its relationship to revascularization outcomes, and its current limitations. The growing impact of pedal artery disease in clinical practice will also be discussed. Finally, the panelists will discuss the latest data on the risks and benefits of drug elution in the CLTI population.
A short survey will be conducted before and after the session, and follow-up survey will follow 60 days later to gauge and evaluate if guidelines were easy to translate into daily clinical practice. Participants will receive the clinical practice guidelines, implementation tools consisting of guideline pocket guides, and link to the app to ensure practicality in aiding participants in improving their clinical practice.
