Dr. Tyson Green Presents Research at National Foot & Ankle Conference
Dr. Tyson Green, foot and ankle specialist with the Center for Orthopaedics, an affiliate of Imperial Health, presented the results of a crushed foot case study at the recent American College of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ACFAS) conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The ACFAS Annual Scientific Conference is the largest educational meeting for foot and ankle surgeons in the U.S. and was attended by over 1400 specialists from around the world.
The case study Dr. Green presented evaluated the benefit of using fluorescent microangiography in the assessment and surgical planning in a crush injury. Microangiography is radiography of the minute blood vessels obtained by injection of a contrast medium and enlargement of the resulting radiograph in order to map the viable tissue. Dr. Green concluded that fluorescent microangiography offers several beneficial uses in the wound care and trauma setting as demonstrated by his surgical case results.
