    Dear All

    An absolute *MUST* for anyone involved in diabetic foot care are the online video presentations avilable from the recent 2007 Diabetic Limb Slavage conference at Georgetown University Hospital.

    Wonderful quality audio/powerpoint presentations, and live surgical cases (eg percutaneus TAL) make this this cheapest and best quality continuing education I have seen for a long time.

    Brilliant!:)
