CBB Biomedical Discussion Group Dr. Jackie Ho

Abstract

Two areas of Vascular Surgery highly require multi-disciplinary care, namely (1) Diabetic foot problem together with peripheral arterial disease and (2) Hemodialysis access. Both conditions involve multiple chronic medical conditions that are prevalent worldwide. Management and treatment of these conditions are not one off but usually long-term including treatment for acute conditions, regular monitoring and maintenance therapy. This seminar will introduce these two conditions, recent innovations and current unmet clinical needs.
