DVA Day at AMP 2024: Saturday, August 17

AMP offers an unparalleled experience tailored for CLI specialists. This event will deliver a unique blend of CLI education and vibrant interactions among faculty and attendees, offering an impactful and inspiring event that you cannot miss. 

This year, we are introducing a dedicated day of programming focused on deep vein arterialization (DVA). Included with your main conference registration or offered as a single-day event, DVA Day grants you comprehensive access to: 

  • Key topics covering DVA patient selection and outcomes, tools and techniques, surveillance, and wound management.
  • 4+ CME/CNE credits.

Why is DVA Education Important?

DVA education is crucial for clinicians because it expands their treatment options for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) and end-stage plantar disease. By understanding the principles, indications, and outcomes associated with DVA, clinicians can offer their patients a potentially limb-saving alternative to amputation. This knowledge enables clinicians to choose the appropriate time to initiate the process, optimize patient selection for DVA, and collaborate effectively with other providers like wound care specialists and podiatrists to provide comprehensive care. Ultimately, DVA education empowers clinicians to deliver patient-centered care that prioritizes limb salvage and preserves the patient’s quality of life.
