W404 - Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection

Jun 5, 2018 11:00am ‐ Jun 5, 2018 12:00pm

Standard: $5.00

Description

Necrotizing soft tissue infections produce a significant amount of morbidity and mortality. These severe infections can be challenging to diagnose and surgical treatment can result in large wounds, while under treatment can result in death. We will review newer techniques that allow for reduced wound size, adequate debridement, and increased wound closure. This talk will also include a discussion of earlier implementation of range of motion, therapy, and long term outcomes in these patients.

Learning Objective:

  • Understand the use off skin sparing techniques in the management of necrotizing infection and improved wound management.

Speaker(s):

  • Samuel Mandell, MD, MPH, FACS, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington
