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