The SVS mobile app (SVS-iPG) that offers SVS practice guidelines on the diagnosis and management of a number of vascular conditions has been upgraded to include clinical recommendations on treating diabetic foot ulceration.
They are the first-ever clinical practice guidelines from multiple disciplines, based upon a meta-analysis for treating diabetic foot ulcers. Creating the guidelines followed three years of study by SVS in collaboration with the American Podiatric Medical Association and the Society for Vascular Medicine. Recommendations cover five major areas.
Users will need to update the interactive Practice Guidelines app. To update, visit the Apple App Store or Google Play, which also is where the free app can be obtained.
The app also has been updated to solve an issue with font color that made recommendations difficult to read.
