Intended Learners

AMP Europe is designed for interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, wound care specialists, podiatrists, nurses, vascular technologists, and cardiovascular catheterization laboratory team members.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply a comprehensive, multidisciplinary best practice approach for patients with advanced peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI) at risk for major amputation
  • Describe arterial angiosome anatomy in conjunction with cutaneous and ultrasonic angiosome mapping in patients with advanced tibio-pedal arterial disease at risk for major amputation
  • Describe the surgical approach to post-revascularization limb salvage for patients with CLI at risk for major amputation
  • Implement a diagnostic algorithm which includes selective angiography as a critical step for patients with CLI who are at risk for amputation
  • Incorporate advanced tibio-pedal access in combination with antegrade access in limb salvage procedures
  • Utilize digital branch access during CLI interventions
  • Implement transcollateral interventions in below-the-knee and below-the-ankle interventions
  • 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 the current state of wound oriented revascularization in the patient with CLI
  • Describe the algorithm to identify and treat mixed arterial and venous wounds in the patient with CLI
  • Describe when to refer the patient with CLI and osteomyelitis for an ID consult
  • Describe when to urgently refer a patient with CLI and wounds to a wound care specialist
  • Describe when to urgently refer a patient post-revascularization back to the revascularization specialist
  • Describe current medical management of the patient with advanced PAD or CLI
  • Describe currently available drug-eluting technology for the treatment of above-the-knee and below-the-knee lesions in the patient with CLI
  • Describe current wire, catheter, balloon, crossing, atherectomy, re-entry, and closure devices available for treatment of CLI, and describe mechanism of action and when most appropriate to utilize
  • Describe the role of atherectomy in CLI and its application in amputation prevention Treat complex chronic total occlusions in tibial and pedal arterial vessels in the patient with CLI
  • Implement procedural and technological advances in wound care practices for patients facing major amputation due to advanced PAD, advanced non-healing wounds, and gangrene
