Webinar Focus

Pressure ulcers represent high costs and labor-intensive challenges to the health care system around the world. Problems occur when offloading fails. If conservative management of pressure ulcers don’t succeed, then operative treatment may be needed. Hereby, the patient must understand and follow the needs of postoperative care. Because of the high recurrence rate of pressure ulcers, allocation of the limited financial resources should target to those patients most likely to benefit from surgical treatment. Social factors such as accessibility to supportive care, compliance and substance abuse are important considerations with strong impact to decide on the definitive treatment.

Dr. Berg will give an overview to clear out this difficult choice between conservative and surgical treatment of pressure ulcers, while keeping in mind to always treat the patient in a holistic approach.
