Revascularization, limb preservation provides more health benefits than wound care, primary amputation

Revascularization, limb preservation provides more health benefits than wound care, primary amputation :  Congrats to our SALSAmigo Neal Barshes for this compelling work. Compared with wound care alone or primary amputation, revascularization and limb preservation attempts may be less costly and provide more health benefits, even among patients with marginal functional status at baseline, according to study results published recently in the  Annals of Vascular Surgery. Using a probabilistic Markov model, researchers stimulated the clinical outcomes, health utilities and costs over 10 years with various management strategies.
