CX ilegx Collaboration Day

Thursday 30 April – Grey Learning Centre

Course director: Michael Edmonds, Cliff Shearman, Iris Baumgartner and Thomas Zeller


The CX ilegx Collaboration Day course has been designed to update attendees on the latest treatment strategies developed to avoid the increasing number of unnecessary lower limb amputations ‒ flagship principles of the ilegx initiative.

The ilegx initiative is a collaboration of like-minded health professionals, patients and care workers who share the view that too many legs are amputated and many of these are completely unnecessary. The Charing Cross Symposium has held a dedicated ilegx session since 2008.

In 2015, delegates will learn about the King’s College Hospital open access vascular diabetic foot care pathway ‒ an effective approach which incorporates early diabetic foot referral and interdisciplinary work ‒ which is showing promising results saving limbs. They will also hear about revascularisation strategies of the ischaemic foot with the latest data in the field; and will have the opportunity to discuss in more detail, in two roundtables led by experts, the controversy of “Leaving something in” or “Leaving nothing behind” in the superficial femoral artery.
