AMPutation Prevention Symposium: Best Year Yet

The team at Advanced Cardiac and Vascular Amputation Prevention Centers (ACV) recently returned from the 8th annual AMPutation Prevention Symposium (AMP) the only international meeting dedicated to the treatment and prevention of critical limb ischemia. The symposium was led by Dr. Jihad Mustapha, co-founder and course director of the event and co-founder of ACV.

This year’s symposium was the largest and most successful yet, with more than 850 attendees representing all 50 states and 17 countries.

At the event, live cases were broadcast by ACV co-founder and AMP course co-director, from ACV in Grand Rapids. AMP included special sessions focused on CLI in the Asia Pacific and Latin America, highlighting the global impact and issue associated with this disease.

“The AMPutation Prevention Symposium remains the only educational forum dedicated exclusively to the treatment and prevention of critical limb ischemia,” Dr. Mustapha said. “Each year, we reaffirm our commitment to grow and advance the CLI Revolution with our globally recognized faculty and cutting-edge technology.

“As we see an increasing number of cases of CLI year over year, every participant of AMP becomes a crucial player in the fight to save limbs and preserve quality of life for our patients. At AMP 2018, we saw how life-changing outcomes can be generated by fearless approaches – and fearless leaders.”
