After an introduction that will explain the main principles of diagnosis and treatment of leg ulcers, participants will be divided in groups that will rotate in different stations.
Wound assessment will be explained following an holistic framework, considering not only the wound, but also perilesional skin and patient comorbidities.
Different diagnostic tools to establish the vascular status of the patient will be discussed. Ankle-brachial index measurement will be performed by the participants themselves.
Practical tips to get to a systematic and efficient differential diagnosis pathway will be suggested. The variety of possible aetiologies of leg ulcers will be explained through rich iconography.
A theoretical and practical approach to compression therapy will be based not only on its benefits for venous ulcers but also on its usefulness in any leg ulcer, when no contraindications exist.
The range of wound dressings and other products, such as negative pressure devices, that are commercially available will be explained, focusing on their components and indications. Autologous skin grafting and cutaneous substitutes will be suggested as interesting options to promote epithelialization.
At the end of the workshop the participants:
1) will be able to perform an accurate wound assessment,
2) will know how to measure ankle-brachial index,
3) will be able to make relevant differential diagnosis,
4) will understand compression therapy, will know different local strategies to promote wound healing, from wound dressings to skin grafting.
Level of proficiency:
This course is designed for both residents and interested specialists
