Foot and ankle specialist Dr. Aksone Nouvong joins Access Health to help us understand how having both diabetes and peripheral artery disease (PAD) increases the potential for foot complications.

People living with diabetes often have neuropathy, where you can’t feel foot problems when they occur. When neuropathy occurs in people with PAD, ulcers can develop over foot deformities and may never heal.

The HyperView imaging system is an innovative, portable medical device that may help clinicians better understand the connection between localized vascular delivery and tissue viability. By imaging oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin levels and oxygen saturation in superficial tissue, the device provides clinicians a new understanding of perfusion, thereby leading to more informed treatment decisions. Applications include wound care, vascular care, reconstructive surgery, and limb preservation among others.

Join us as we look at this innovation and find out more!
