Use of Hyperspectral Imaging to Predict Healing of Diabetic Foot Ulceration #Diagnostics #Theragnostics #ActAgainstAmputation @ALPSlimb

This work by our colleagues from the Deaconess and Joslin constitutes another advance in the slow, steady march toward deriving an actionable value from hyperspectral imaging. Bottom line: Using oxyHb 50 as the cutof point to predict DFU complete healing, Visit 1 oxyHb measurement provided 85% sensitivity, 70% specificity, 50% positive predictive value and 93%...

Stratification of Microvascular Disease Severity in the Foot Using Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging

Work from our combined UofA and USC team with our colleagues at Modulim. Samuel Jett 1, Mallory R Thompson 2, Shubhangi Awasthi 2, David J Cuccia 1, Tze-Woei Tan 2, David G Armstrong 3, Amaan Mazhar 1, Craig C Weinkauf 2 Background: Microvascular disease (MVD) describes systemic changes in the small vessels (~100 um diameter) that impair tissue oxygenation and perfusion. MVD is a common but poorly monitored complication of diabetes.... Continue Reading →

Steal syndrome from a superficial circumflex iliac perforator artery flap in a patient with a hypoplastic posterior tibial artery and severe diabetic peripheral artery disease

This just published from our group in Oxford's Journal of Surgical Case Reports The use of free flaps in lower extremity reconstructive surgery has seen growing adoption for treating tissue loss in patients with diabetes mellitus and peripheral artery disease as a means for limb preservation. The superficial circumflex iliac perforator artery (SCIP) flap is... Continue Reading →
