Abstract

Summary:

Limb salvage that focuses on an optimal functional recovery requires an acute awareness of the surgical possibilities that plastic and reconstructive surgeons bring to the table. An integral part of the team, plastic surgeons have, over the years developed new strategies that have vastly improved the rates of limb salvage. Other members of this team including Vascular, Orthopedic surgeons as well as Physical therapists and Wound Care Team play a vital role in not only being able to identify approaches that treat limbs at risk, reducing associated morbidity and mortality.
