Multidisciplinary limb salvage service: Reducing major amputations in diabetic foot infections
from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Diabetic foot infections can lead to limb loss and mortality. To improve patient care at a safety net teaching hospital, researchers created a multidisciplinary vascular limb salvage service. This study describes outcomes before and after creation of this service. Adults admitted to the newly established LSS for DFI during a six-month period from 2016 to 2017 were included prospectively.
