C3 2019: Wound care and why it is a “huge and emerging field”

Karen Bauer (Toledo, USA) discusses the wound care limb salvage track at C3 which offered the “opportunity for clinicians from multiple disciplines to get together and talk about some really cutting-edge” topics.

Bauer, a wound specialist, says that at the meeting she “learned a lot about endovascular repair” and how important it is, as well as how to “evaluate lower extremity circulation” and “how to treat and identify biofilm in the setting of a chronic wound”.
