Vascular Disorders / Raynaud’s Hypothenar Hammer Syndrome / Botox Mon, Oct 1 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

This session will educate the attendee on a wide range of vascular disease states of the upper extremity. Ischemia-related to scleroderma/Raynaud phenomenon will be discussed, along with the role of peri-arterial sympathectomy and the off-label use of botulinum toxin to treat this disorder. Causes of acute ischemia will be reviewed, and management of hypothenar hammer syndrome will be discussed. Finally, we'll discuss chronic hand ischemia, such as is seen in advanced peripheral vascular disease and explore cutting-edge treatment options for these challenging cases. We promise dedicated time during this session for Q&A from the audience!
