Dr. Ian Valerio and Dr. Margaret Roubaud reviewed utilization of TMR in the oncologic patient for the reduction of post-amputation neuroma and phantom limb pain in major limb amputations. The presenters reviewed recent clinical data comparing TMR to standard practice (nerve relocation and bury into muscle) in the oncologic and trauma patient populations. Considerations for the utilization of TMR in the oncologic patient population, procedure overview and tips for getting started with TMR were discussed. The session concluded with an interactive question and answer session.
