A systematic review of multidisciplinary teams to reduce major amputations for patients with diabetic foot ulcers @vascularsvs #ToeFlowandGo #ActAgainstAmputation

In short teamwork works, worldwide.

Congratulations to Musuuza and coworkers for this important work published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery

The opening line of this manuscript summarizes the dire need for teams like few others I’ve read:

“Nearly 2 million Americans develop a diabetic foot ulcer each year; within 5 years of ulceration, 5% will undergo major amputation and 50-70 will die.” Musuuza and coworkers, J Vasc Surg, 2019
